wines born, raised, and made on pritchard hill.
the 2021 vintage
The BRAND Napa Valley 2021 vintage is the first vintage since 2019. It’s the culmination of three years of hard work, and all the inspiration behind it.
It’s wine made modern once more–our intent is to move wine forward by revisiting first principles every time. It’s wine of it’s place (100% Pritchard Hill), made over 1100+ days of obsessive attention to every detail. Most importantly, it’s wine by and for all the BRAND believers we hope to know.
