Description

Alpha Omega is thrilled to share its very first vintage of “Angels Vista” vineyard at Premiere Napa Valley 2024. Clearly visible from our winery, Angels Vista is nestled in the Vaca Mountains between the Rutherford and Pritchard Hill growing regions with dramatic vistas of Lake Hennessey and the valley floor below. Historically used as a cattle ranch, we have been blessed with two small, expertly situated blocks that total just five acres in this nine-year-old vineyard. The angelic beauty of expertly farmed rows running up and down dramatic hillsides, the meticulously trained vines and the incredible vistas from 1,000 feet all seem heaven sent and fortunately not just for Angels. Winemaker Matt Brain has handcrafted these grapes into a divine expression of 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, 100% barrel fermented wine that is unfined and unfiltered, aging for 18 months in 100% French oak barriques.

Winemaker Matt Brain, possessing a master’s degree in biosciences and a background in process engineering, brings naturalist philosophies and highly technical abilities to winemaking at Alpha Omega where he began as Associate Winemaker. After leaving a successful career in the Toronto area to pursue his dream of winemaking in California, the Ontario, Canada native joined Phase 2 Cellars, a custom winemaking operation in San Luis Obispo, for the 2006 harvest. Matt was quickly promoted to supervise cellar operations for the facility’s premium label, Tolosa, while receiving mentorship from some of the most renowned and respected professionals in California.

Matt earned his Bachelor of Science and Master of Science in biosciences at Sam Houston State University, where he was a scholarship decathlete. He also earned a winemaking degree from UC Davis and held winemaker titles at prominent California wineries and winemaker/lecturer positions with Enology and Viticulture programs at both Cal Poly and Fresno State universities. He partnered with The Vineyard Team, which promotes sustainable winegrowing, as a Sustainability Auditor and continues to educate as a Podcast Host for the organization. Matt’s passion for the environment benefits Alpha Omega, where the land and winery are both Napa Green certified and the Vineyard Management team practices sustainable farming.
