B. Wise Vineyards
Before planting a single grape vine or laying a building cornerstone, Brion Wise (owner of B. Wise Estate), spent a lot of time walking the property and sitting on overturned buckets considering what view he wanted from which place, and how the vineyard rows should be laid out. Then, with help from his friend John Caldwell, known in parts of Napa as the King of Clones, the estate vineyards were planted in 2002.
