Critical Acclaim

“Bravium’s incredibly boutique, small production wines deliver traditional, balanced Pinot Noir and Chardonnay that are a true gift and rarity in the state thanks to his emphasis on carefully tended and selected terroir and his dedication to the ‘less is more’ approach.”

— Ian Cauble, Master Sommelier

27 of the Best Chardonnays for 2022: "Bravium boasts four words on its homepage: Sun, soil, wind, and fog. They make wine in the unique northern AVA of Mendocino, specifically Anderson Valley. And this wine is a good example of the kind of balance wines here can attain. The wine is drying on the nose with some pear fruit but mostly that clean river rock-like minerality. The drying sensation carries to the mouthfeel along with a welcome alcoholic depth. There is oak here but it’s almost imperceptible giving the wine its needed depth."
