Winemaker Brianne Day
An Oregon native, Brianne caught the wine bug during a trip to Italy when she was 19. She went to the far side of the world for her first harvest at the Murdoch James Estate in Martinborough, New Zealand. Day’s passion and persistence helped her land positions at some of the finest wineries in Oregon. Including Willamette pioneer David Lett’s Eyrie as well as at iconic Brooks Wines. In addition, performing in Argentina (Cepas Elegidas), and Burgundy (Domaine Huber-Verdereau). All the while, Day was developing her craft. While setting herself up to return to the Willamette Valley and start her own winery. Her first release was 125 cases of single-vineyard Pinot in 2012. Since then, Brianne’s reputation has skyrocketed—and not just amongst hip, Brooklyn sommeliers.
