The western section of High Valley Appellation holds the magical lands know as High Serenity Ranch. The 2,500 acre former cattle ranch is now home to Brassfield Estate Winery & Vineyard. In 1973, Jerry Brassfield purchased the original 1,600 acres as a cattle ranch and wildlife reserve. While the cattle have gone, the wildlife still remains. Over the next three decades Mr. Brassfield continued acquiring lands. Today, the estate includes both the eastern and the western sections of High Valley as well as ownership of Round Mountain Volcano.
In 1998, the Brassfield family realized the landís true destiny was as a world-class wine property. As a result, Brassfield Estate Winery & Vineyard was established. With the new estate vineyards increased production, the winery has grown with additional tank & barrel storage capacity and a state-of-the-art crushing facility.
As an ESTATE BOTTLED winery, Brassfield Estate has an advantage over the competition:
Careful research matching correct varietals to optimal vineyard site.
Development control in planting for spacing, row direction, canopy/trellis development.
Farming philosophy of sustainable agriculture done with meticulous care for optimum grape quality.
Harvest practices of hand picking, use of half ton bins and limited movement to winery to prevent fruit damage.
Winemaking in the hands of winemaker Kevin Robinson.
