What started as a love for and passion to explore the world of wine while living in Chicago soon blossomed into the real thing for Brooks Friedeman. The first vintage was particularly small, only 250 cases produced, and the Friedemans sold nearly all of it to a select few accounts back home in the Windy City. Momentum picked up the following year when Wine Spectator awarded each and every wine of their 90 or more points. Supporting and celebrating wineries like Friedeman Wines is at the heart of everything Winestyr hopes to represent.
Brooks has long term grape purchasing and vineyard lease agreements with multiple premium vineyards in the Sonoma Coast with a focus on Russian River Valley. Taking things a step further, Brooks only works with two vineyard managers: the legendary Ulises Valdez family and Dutton Ranch. Brooks’ estate planting was completed in 2015 on the western edge of Russian River near Freestone.
