BACA Wines’ Jennifer Brown Talks Being a Third-Generation Vinter.

Jennifer sits down with Ventuer Magazine to discuss her vision for the modern Zinfandel brand, BACA. 

"My mother always told me that if you can’t have fun while making wine, what is the point? I took that to heart and decided to name each of our wines after a game or something playful.

After all, even though we make seriously good wine, I never want to take ourselves too seriously. The wines also have deeper meanings. Home Base, for example, comes from the Dry Creek Valley, near our home winery in Healdsburg."

Women in Wine: BACA Wines is Leads by Example

"With far fewer than 50% of Napa Valley Wineries having female winemakers, BACA is incredibly fortunate to have Alison as their rock-star winemaker. They are even further shattering glass ceilings with the stand-out leadership of Director Jennifer Brown."

Women in Wine: BACA Wines is Leads by Example

Vintner Jennifer Brown and Winemaker Alison Frichtl Craft Luxurious Zinfandel with their new BACA brand.

"BACA will follow the WALT platform by sourcing grapes from established and proven zinfandel vineyards, rather than pinot noir. The Paso Robles, Russian River Valley, Howell Mountain and Rockpile AVAs are among the finest growing regions for California zinfandel, and each enhances BACA’s goal of making nuanced wines."

Women within the wine industry: Creating high end, small batch, and elegant wine

Jennifer is featured in the new edition of Sonoma Magazine this month sharing insight into her journey to the wine industry. (7/22/2022)

"BACA means “berry” in Latin. We focus on making wines from heritage vineyards. When a vine is older, it produces less fruit, but the fruit is more concentrated. We make wine in a contemporary style: energetic and unpretentious, but still luxurious."

We’re always up for an adventure.

Here at BACA, we’re big on embracing the moment. On living fully and wonder-filled. We have a hunch you do, too. So sip some BACA, take in today, and try to solve our puzzle. It just may surprise you.

A little bit of fun – that’s what BACA is all about.
