WHO WE ARE AND WHAT WE DO

A campfire, a marmot and a flask of whiskey...  These are the humble beginnings of Baker & Brain Wines. On a Yosemite backcountry camping trip in 2009, Josh Baker and Matt Brain discovered a common goal of creating a wine label that would showcase the hard work and responsible farming taking place at their favorite vineyards.

Purpose


BAKER & BRAIN IS WINE WITH A PURPOSE

Baker & Brain is small-lot, minimal intervention winemaking aimed at showcasing the finest, most consciously farmed vineyards throughout California, while maintaining a minimal carbon footprint. Exceptional fruit is minimally processed to create wines that are expressive, balanced and exciting.

Philosophy


MAXIMUM ATTENTION - MINIMUM INTERVENTION

We’ve never been good at sitting on our hands, but sometimes, that’s key.  Often, the hardest thing to do as a winemaker is nothing.  We truly believe that wine is made in the vineyard.  We pursue a very minimalistic approach to winemaking; intervening only when we’re sure it’s absolutely necessary and allowing the fruit to express itself as it will.

Farming


WE BELIEVE IN OUR FARMERS, BECAUSE THEY PRODUCE GREAT GRAPES.

Baker & Brain is a non-appellation specific producer of fine wines.  Doesn’t that feel good?  No county lines, no AVA constraints.  We source our grapes, grown in the most loved vineyards, farmed by the best in the business – regardless of where they call home.

Sustain


SUSTAINABILITY MEANS A LOT TO US

Sustainability, to us, means sourcing fruit from farmers who are doing things right – not just for the earth, but for the animals and people who spend their lives between the vines.  Many of our wines are SIP certified, and all of them are made at a winery where all waste is 100% recycled and the power all comes from the sun.  We’re small, but doing the right thing just makes sense.  Plus, it feels nice.
