Brack Mountain Wine Company is located in Sebastopol, California and their Enos Estate Vineyards and wine cave is located in the Dry Creek Valley, Healdsburg, California. Dan Fitzgerald & John Harvey craft multiple labels (Bench, L’Oliveto, Cyprus, Daniel), from esteemed vineyard sites in Sonoma County using old world methods (picking vineyards at lower brix, low temperature fermentations using indigenous/vineyard yeasts, and aging in neutral French oak).

Great vineyards along with expert and sustainable growing practices are essential to making great wine. Brack Mountain is honored to partner with many of the best growers in the business. They work closely with them to source grapes capable of producing exceptional wines.

Founded in 2008 by Jason Enos and Chris Fitzgerald, Brack Mountain Wine Company immediately took a unique approach to creating wines (creating multiple labels and diversifying their holdings to over 30 long term vineyard contracts). This partnership coupled Jason’s experience in business and hospitality with Chris’ vast vineyard holdings and connections in Sonoma County.
