brick & mortar
WINEMAKER: Matt Iaconis
brick & mortar is the poster child for the life of a small family winery. Focusing on single vineyard Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, both in still and sparkling wines, from high elevation sites in Napa Valley, Sonoma Coast, Russian River Valley and Mendocino Ridge Appellations. Matt, his partner & wife Alexis manage a family of 5, including Hadley, Olivia and Lincoln with a beautiful unique set of wines.
2019 Vin Petillant Rosé, Homeblock Vineyard
A unique sparkling rosé made from 51% Pinot Noir and 49% Chardonnay. A delicious aperitif or brunch bubbly, and a great match for smoked salmon, oysters or fresh cheeses. Fine bubbles intertwine flavors of ripe pear and red apple with strawberries and cream. The nose is delicate and floral, with notes of cherry blossom, rose petal and orange zest. The wine is rich on the palate with a mouthwatering freshness and vivaciously creamy bubble equal to many fully sparkling wines.

2015 Blanc de Blancs, Sweetwater Springs Vineyard
Russian River Valley
Expressive with honeysuckle, Gravenstein apple, and marzipan aromas. On the palate the vivacious bubbles encapsulate flavors of asian pear, lemon meringue, and apple blossom, highlighting the beauty of the Chardonnay grape. With crystalline acidity and focused purity, this Blanc de Blancs can be enjoyed now or cellared for an additional five to ten years.
