The aromatics of this wine are downright explosive. This wine is leaps out of the glass with guava, passionfruit, grapefruit, lemon and lily of valley. The palate is so broad, textured, expansive even, with lush peach and nectarine, and a great savory backbone of crushed gravel. This Albariño is so ripe and refreshing and I want to put it in my camel pack and carry it with me all summer long. 

These Albariño grapes were machine picked just before dawn and rushed to the winery to commence pressing as soon as possible.  The juice was transferred to two neutral barrels for fermentation.  This process took place over 3 weeks at 60 ̊F.  After primary fermentation was completed, SO2 was added to prevent malolactic fermentation and preserve the beautiful aromatics.  The wine was then racked off the lees and transferred to stainless steel drums for 2 months until being sterile filtered and bottled on January 26, 2023. Vegan. 

30 cases produced. 

2022 Brockmeyer Albarino


These delicious grapes come from Otis Vineyard in the Yakima Valley. It is farmed by Sean Tudor who has owned the vineyard since 2013.  It was originally planted to Cabernet Sauvignon in 1956 by Otis Harlan and those vines are still producing today.  The Albariño has since been planted at this great site.  Sean’s grandfather, Andy, founded Tudor Hills Vineyard in 1947 in Fontana, Calif., in the Cucamonga Valley east of Los Angeles near San Bernardino.  The Tudor family moved their farming operation to the Yakima Valley in the 1960s and has been farming there ever since.

Brock the younger (Brett) moved up to Yakima to take over winemaking at Isenhower Vineyards. They scored this fruit as their first for their expanding Washington portfolio.

We're on a break!

Don’t worry. We are coming back better than ever in 2024!
