Brewer-Clifton: Distinctive Wines from Sta. Rita Hills

Greg Brewer and Steve Clifton met in 1995 and created Brewer-Clifton with their inaugural bottling of 240 cases in 1996. They built their first stand-alone winery in 2000 in what later would become Lompoc’s “Wine Getto.” Sta. Rita Hills AVA was approved as an American Viticultural Area that same year and in 2001 Robert Parker announced that Brewer-Clifton was his “single greatest revelation of all of his 2001 tastings.” He put them on his list of 2001 wine personalities of the year and went on to declare that, “…their Burgundian styled Chardonnays and extraordinary Pinot Noirs from the cool micro climate of Santa Barbara, particularly those from the new appellation called Santa Rita Hills, are astonishing.”

After Brewer-Clifton was acquired by Jackson Family wines this year, Greg Brewer said, “The Jackson family maintains a commitment to world-class wines, a respect for nature and vision for uncompromising quality that’s very much aligned with our philosophy. I’m confident our collective strengths will further propel the Sta. Rita Hills on the global stage of fine wines.”

I am personally thrilled to have the opportunity to sell these distinctive wines and work with Greg Brewer and his team to share the Brewer-Clifton story and the unique terroir of the Sta. Rita Hills AVA.
