Winery Information

"August Briggs Winery is an 'employees turned owners' winery in Napa Valley dedicated to producing very limited quantities of great wines from carefully selected vineyards across  Napa and Sonoma counties. Founder Joe Briggs brings a quarter-century of winemaking knowledge in working with quality grape growers to produce our signature style of balanced wines with intense fruit character.
Our eclectic portfolio includes single vineyard and appellation bottlings of Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Syrah, Petite Sirah, Pinot Meunier, Zinfandel, Chardonnay and Charbono – each one an expression of restrained winemaking and site signature." - Winery Notes

August Briggs Leveroni Vineyard Carneros Chardonnay 2011 Tasting Notes

"This wine opens with aromas of pineapple and mango, with a touch of vanilla.  On the palate, the texture is rich from barrel fermentation, but enough acidity remains to keep it fresh on the palate, with flavors of pear, pineapple and honeydew melon." - Winery Notes

August Briggs Monte Rosso Cabernet 2009 Tasting Notes

"Our 2009 'Monte Rosso Vineyard' Cabernet Sauvignon is another winner from this famed vineyard. The wine is supple and creamy-textured, with ripe plum and cherry flavors that show touches of dried herbs." - Winery Notes

August Briggs Monte Rosso Cabernet 2010 Tasting Notes

"The 'Monte Rosso' or 'Red Mountain' vineyard is so named for its rich, red volcanic soils. Nestled in the majestic Mayacamas Mountain range, almost 1,000 feet above the Sonoma Valley floor, this steep and rugged mountain vineyard has a desirable western exposure that produce intense, decadent, powerful wines." - Winery Notes
