Bravium translates from Latin as "reward, prize, or gift" and sums up Proprietor and Winemaker Derek Rohlffs’ feelings about wine – namely that it is a reward for their labors, a prized part of mealtime, and a gift to be shared. Derek's winemaking philosophy is an extension of his Environmental Studies background and belief that great wine begins in the vineyard. Bravium utilizes minimalist winemaking practices and its wines are balanced and food-friendly. One of Derek's music heroes, Jack White, has said: "Technology is the disease you have to fight in any creative field…ease of use [is the enemy]." And while winemaking is part art and part science, Bravium emphasizes traditional methods whenever possible. Bravium was created to give back to charitable organizations by way of its Sip&Give donation platform. View all Lucky WinesIt's not rare to see a wine's country of origin listed as "California."

9 ratings, 6 with reviewsArdent Oenophile - Mesquite, NV58/1/2013Red blends are very popular and this one in particular explains why. It's very versatile and it goes with just about any red-appropriate pairing. And at $14.99, it might be the best value on the board!BruceG - North Olmsted, OH512/1/2013
Big fruit flavors, but not sweet. Nice smooth finish. I would probably rate it a 4, but at $15, I have to give it a 5.Allan II - San Mateo, CA58/2/2013

This wine is delicious! Big cherry and berry fruit flavors up front and a smooth mouthfeel. It has a complex nose with savory, spicy notes complimenting the dark fruit flavors and a long finish. The best under $15 bottle we've had in a long time...this is our new everyday red wine.Adam Z - Brooklyn, NY35/27/2014hfolatc - North Attleboro, MA54/6/2014
