Bret is the co-founder and winemaker of the new-kid-on-the-block winery, Cote West. Growing up in Carmel Valley he developed an early appreciation for the natural beauty of the California landscape. He received a Masters degree in Viticulture & Enology from UC Davis and got his hands dirty interning at Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars in Napa and Domaine des Comtes Lafon in Meursault Burgundy. Upon returning from France, he set out to combine that tradition-steeped approach with his training at Davis in order to create Old World-style yet undeniably Californian wines. Bret adheres to all of the same techniques he learned abroad, from skin-contact to cooperage. The only differentiating factor: the grapes themselves, all of which are sourced from esteemed Californian vineyards. Come in and meet the man himself, as we daydream of Burgundy while sipping the beautiful bounty of California.
