At Brass Tacks, we believe the essence of California wine is in the fruit. Each wine captures the unique essence of the varietal as well as the region in which it thrives. At Brass Tacks we source the fruit from regions that are among the best suited for the varietal.
Our Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon wines are sourced from the southern Central Coast, where a warm climate and close proximity to the Pacific Ocean offer ideal growing conditions. Brass Tacks Riesling is sourced from Monterey AVA, where the long growing season allows the fruit to hang longer on the vine, developing true varietal characteristics. The North Coast Petite Sirah is sourced from vineyards that benefit from the cool winds off the Pacific Ocean. Brass Tacks Zinfandel is sourced from Amador County, home to some of the oldest Zinfandel vineyards in the nation.
