The Brea Story

Chris Brockway, a noted California natural winemaker and owner of Broc Cellars, and Tim Elenteny, the libations logistics leader of Elenteny Imports, are the masterminds behind BREA Wine Company. The two seek to create wine that is beyond reproach by fostering close relationships with farmers and choosing vineyards known for their high-quality grapes. BREA wines are accessible in price, quality, and ready-to-drink but also suitable for short-term aging. Their goal is to open minds back up to these classic varietals.

They have seen the thirst for site-specific, terroir driven, and sustainably farmed wine become the driving force for many avant-garde California winemakers who gravitate toward varieties that flow outside the mainstream. BREA Wine Company seeks to capture this thirst while also bringing the beloved classic varietals such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, and Pinot Noir into the fold. All BREA wines are made naturally, meaning no use of inoculated yeasts or bacteria - only native yeast is used to spark fermentation. There are no additions of any powdered tannins or enzymes and a minimal dose of S02 is added 4 weeks before bottling to some wines. Sustainable vineyard sources from all over California are thoughtfully chosen and BREA is produced and bottled in Berkeley, CA.
