    Winemaker Notes

    Rosella's Vineyard is one of the most renowned plantings in the Santa Lucia Highlands. It is owned and farmed by Gary and Rosella Franscioni. Originally planted in 1996, the Pinot Noir block that we are allocated is split between Clone 113 and Pisoni. The estate's close proximity to Monterey Bay makes for a very cool, Region I climate. The growing season here is one of the longest in California, allowing for full flavor development on the vine. In the winery, whole cluster Pinot Noir was gently pressed upon arrival at the winery. Fermentation in a combination of neutral oak vessels and stainless steel fermenters was followed by gravity racking to tank. The 2015 Bravium Rosella's Vineyard Rose of Pinot Noir is an extremely limited production wine with only 48 cases being produced. This wine has a light pink salmon color and very bright berry, citrus, and floral aromas. Mouthwatering and lush fruit flavors are dominated by citrus and strawberry. This wine has a great mid-palate and a refreshing finish.

    Bravium translates from Latin as "reward, prize, or gift." Derek Rohlffs - Bravium’s Proprietor & Winemaker - founded the winery in 2007. Derek always had a mysterious pull to nature. To hear him tell it, the vineyard is his destiny. Derek does not view his path to winemaking as a conscious choice, but more of an undercurrent that quietly ushered him to where he belongs. 

    Today, Derek welcomes the sight of hawks circling over the vineyards and swooping down to the earth around him. A single hawk’s feather fittingly graces the Bravium label, echoing the power, elegance, and vitality of the wines- and of Derek’s Cherokee roots. According to Derek, “A great wine will draw you into the people, the place, and the story behind it.”

    Bravium produces single vineyard, traditionally-crafted Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grown in hillside and mountaintop vineyards. Bravium’s vineyards are located in the relatively cool growing regions of Anderson Valley, Russian River Valley, Carneros, Mendocino Ridge and Santa Lucia Highlands. Derek employs simple winemaking techniques - gravity-moving wines and bottling his red wines unfined and unfiltered - allowing the vineyards and vintages to remain at the forefront. "The longer I make wine, the more I subscribe to a 'less is more' approach," Derek has said. Critics are growing increasingly excited about Bravium's wines, placing it alongside benchmark "producers such as Rhys, Kalin Cellars, Porter Creek, Joseph Swan, Copain and Littorai," while calling out its "deft integration of oak, judicious use of whole cluster fermentation, pleasant aromatics, flavor without weight, and bright acidity for refreshing drinking."
