In 2006 Brianne Day sold everything she owned and began traveling through wine regions all over the world. Over the following eight years she visited around 80 different regions, working at wineries in Burgundy, Argentina, Australia, and New Zealand. During this time she re-established her home base in Oregon and worked at a number of wineries including The Eyrie Vineyards and Brooks.
In 2012 she started her own winery with some Pinot Noir grapes from the 15-acre, dry-farmed Crowley Station Vineyard in the Eola Amity Hills. The inaugural vintage was only 125 cases and sold out quickly. On the strength of that single bottling she was invited to the RAW fair in London and was one of only seven American wineries mentioned in Isabelle Legeron’s recent book, Natural Wine, alongside Edmunds St. John and Arnot Roberts.
A killer blend of Tannat and Malbec from Southern Oregon, it showcases the Day wines trademark brilliant balance and elegance, and is built with enough stuffing to enjoy for years to come. This wine has crisp acidity with freeze-dried red berry fruit.
