Every patch of earth has a story rooted deep in its soil â€“ an evolving, unfolding story.
Since the mid 1990s, our sustainably farmed vineyard has been preparing itself for a new chapter. Weâ€™re now composing that chapter under the name Brave & Maiden Estate. We take our name from the â€śLegend of Nojoquiâ€ť (pronounced Naw-ho-wee), an indigenous incarnation of Romeo & Juliet. Set at the nearby Nojoqui Falls, the legend recounts the story of star-crossed lovers who choose death over separation. Inspired generic cialis india by such profound dedication, weâ€™ve committed ourselves to crafting the most exquisite wines our estate can yield. The 2011 Union is Brave & Maidenâ€™s inaugural offering. This proprietary red blend is aÂ pairingÂ of grapes not always foundÂ together in oneÂ bottle. TheÂ classicÂ RhĂ´neÂ varietal, Syrah, finds a uniqueÂ expression in this blendÂ with traditional grapesÂ ofÂ Bordeaux: Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Together, they formÂ a wine that not only exhibits the bestÂ of our vineyard, but isÂ representative ofÂ the varietal strengths ofÂ the Santa Ynez Valley. Our vision for Brave & Maiden is twofold: to be vintners tenaciously striving to capture greatness in a bottle and to be gracious hosts, eager to create for you an incomparableÂ and unforgettable experience of our wines.
