Chris Brockway built Broc Cellars on a philosophy of sourcing sustainable and organic fruit in order to create exceptional wines. He takes a hands-off approach, allowing nature to be in charge, using only organic growing practices and indigenous yeasts to ferment his wines, and never adding or taking anything away. For years now, ‘Vine Starr’ has been the pride of the winery: a California zinfandel that prioritizes subtlety and minerality over heft. Drawn from two Sonoma County vineyards with pronounced volcanic soil compositions—Arrowhead Mountain and Buck Hill—it has more in common with wines from the Rhône Valley than with those from the Russian River Valley. Harvested early for freshness, the grapes were destemmed and fermented in stainless steel, followed by 10 months of aging in neutral French barrels. The finished wine is bottled unfined and unfiltered, with zero sulfur added. Ripe berries and black cherry unfold with a restrained richness, wrapped in smoky wet leaves and cut with stony minerality before a fresh finish. Organically grown, low-intervention/natural wine, vegan.
