About Big Basin Vineyards
Big Basin Vineyards is named for nearby Big Basin Redwoods State Park, which lies 1 mile from the winery. It is the only vineyard in the Santa Cruz Mountains planted exclusively to Rhone varietals, including Syrah, Grenache and Roussanne. International wine critics have consistently acknowledged the winery’s achievements including Wine & Spirits, which named Big Basin one of the top 100 wineries in 2008, Robert Parker Jr., who enthusiastically noted the "Impressive Syrahs," and Wine Spectator Magazine, which cited Big Basin as one of ten "Promising new producers" of Syrah in California. With the 2006 harvest, proprietor and winemaker Bradley Brown began producing single vineyard Santa Cruz Mountains Pinot Noirs, again, to critical acclaim.
