Our Philosophy

Family and wine have always been at the heart of who I am.

– Adrian Bolshoi, winemaker

At Brick Barn Wine Estate, we honor a winemaking philosophy deeply rooted in our estate vineyard’s character and the unique attributes of our location. Guided by the essence of our vineyard, we embrace non-invasive farming practices that allow our fruit to express its inherent qualities, resulting in wines of remarkable personality and distinction.

Our commitment to the “will of the vineyard” is reflected in our approach: minimal interventions, purposeful inputs, and an unwavering dedication to showcasing terroir clarity. This ethos demands constant vigilance both in the vineyard and the cellar, where our winemaking practices adapt to the nuances of each variety and vineyard lot.

Under the discerning guidance of Winemaker Adrian Bolshoi, we employ a diverse array of fermentation and maturation vessels, including neutral oak barrels, new oak barrels, oak puncheons, stainless steel, and concrete. Each wine undergoes a tailored maceration and fermentation process, ensuring that its unique characteristics are accentuated and celebrated.

Our pursuit of excellence never wanes. We remain steadfast in our quest to amplify the voice of each vineyard block, perpetually exploring new techniques to honor the terroir’s intention and unlock its boundless potential for greatness.
