Winestyr Review

Similar to the Dichotomy line, this Sonoma Coast bottling combines all of Brooks' expertise and vineyard relationships into one beautiful, approachable wine. Not only is this wine consistently applauded by critics, its alluring finish full of spice and mouth watering acidity is enough to make this jaded sommelier swoon. 93 points Wine Enthusiast.

What We Love

If you've never had wines from Brooks Friedeman, start here.


Friedeman Wines is a micro-producer of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. We are immensely proud to be the exclusive outlet to secure his wines.


Originally from the Chicago area themselves, the Friedemans' story behind their foray into winemaking epitomizes those we had in mind when we started Winestyr. Their first production, only 200 cases a handful of years ago, took place more or less out of a garage, and was so well received that it sold out to local residents before it could even be introduced to the outside public. They've since produced several more vintages, each a slightly larger production than the last (though still very small productions), and have continued to grow their craft business organically. This is the winery you want to hear about on a trip to wine country - the one only the locals know about and love because of its great product and fantastic people.

    Probably my favorite wine I’ve gotten from Winestyr

  • Verified Purchase

    At this price I expect something comparable to the Belle Glos pinot noir, but this wine was far from that.

  • Verified Purchase

    This was solid.

  • Verified Purchase

    My favorite wine so far. Had a bit of a fizz to it that was very enjoyable. A little heavier than some Pinot Noirs.
