About Kelleher Family Vineyard

The Kelleher Family Vineyard is situated along Highway 29 in the famous Oakville Appellation in the heart of the Napa Valley.We have 10 acres planted exclusively with Cabernet Sauvignon grapes and we have named this beautiful piece of land "Brix Vineyard", after our namesake restaurant "Brix".

Our vineyard is situated along Highway 29 in the famous Oakville Appellation in the heart of the Napa Valley.  We have 10 acres planted exclusively with Cabernet Sauvignon grapes.  We've named this beautiful piece of land "Brix Vineyard", after our namesake restaurant "Brix".

For many years guests would come into our restaurant, Brix, and ask if we offered a wine from grapes grown on the property. The answer was complicated. We had for some time grown and sold our grapes to some of the Valley’s most prized labels. But the more often we were asked the question, the more the idea took hold. And in 2004, we decided it was time to create a wine unique to our own vineyard.  So we, the Kelleher family, set out to produce our own estate-grown Cabernet Sauvignon; with abundant help from some of the most knowledgeable people in the Napa Valley and a uniquely talented winemaker, Craig Becker.

We have always encouraged our guests to walk through our vineyard and taste the grapes as they ripen in the Fall; and now, to make this experience so much more complete, they are able to do so while enjoying a glass of Kelleher Family Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon from our very own "Brix Vineyard".We believe it has been well worth the wait. And we hope you enjoy our remarkable wines from one of the world’s most legendary appellations.

 

Brix Vineyards

We have worked with Gallegos Farming Company for the past couple of seasons and we will continue to do so because of the high level of service we have received.  The Gallegos family work closely with our winemaker, Craig Becker.

The partnership is dedicated to employing sustainable farming techniques and in so doing, the harvest from our vineyard has yielded superior fruit season after season.

 

Winemaker: Craig Becker

Our winemaker, Craig Becker, has been with Kelleher Wines since harvest of 2003. In that time he has worked closely with Daniel Roberts as well as Gallegos Farming to make some significant adjustments in our 10 acre vineyard in the Oakville AVA. Craig is a graduate of the University of California, Davis where he majored in Soil Science and Plant Physiology.  He discovered wine while at UCD and then decided to continue his education and while working at Robert Mondavi Winery in Oakville. Craig’s next move was up to Spring Mountain Vineyard in 1998 where he was fully exposed to the integration of vineyard management practices and wine making. Two mentors, David Ramey and Daniel Roberts, guided Craig in his journey toward becoming the successful winemaker he is today.

Craig has sought out projects such as Kelleher Wines since it gives him the ability to manage and direct the vineyard. He firmly believes that a truly great wine comes from a well cared for vineyard and he has pursued only the finest vineyards from which to make his wines. Craig’s other projects include Peacock Family Vineyards, Cross Cellars, Dovetail Wines, Balcom Family Wines, Highflyer, Priest Ranch and Somerston Vineyards.

Vineyard Dog

Our two Yellow Labrador Retrievers go non-stop until the sun goes down! OK, we're fibbing. Bode likes to sleep a ton and Colby is the younger dog with a mischievous twinkle in his eye.

Meet Leigh's new Dachshund Enzo, the newest member of the dogs who you may see in our vineyard from time to time.  He loves to hunt the Jack Rabbits!
