This rare expression of Napa Valley winemaking is one of only 60 bottles that will ever be made. Think of it as a bit of Napa Valley history in your cellar and celebrated in a glass with friends and family. Your Premiere Napa Valley wine is from a single vineyard, a single variety and a select single barrel. Broman Vineyard is nestled in a sweet spot on the hillside above St. Helena and below Howell Mountain. Rocky soils yield a wine with great depth and balance with years of aging potential. Hand-sorting, a cold soak and manual punch-downs helped bring out the full flavor potential of the grapes. Aging in French oak barrels for up to three years further nurtured flavor concentration. The finished wine is rich in dark fruit with excellent acid and smooth tannin structure.

Robert Broman

Winemaker, Broman Cellars

Winemaker, Robert Broman

When you ask Bob, "When did you start being a winemaker?" he responds with, "In the dark ages." Over half of Bob???s life has been spent as a winemaker. It is his driving force and passion for great wine and winemaking that makes him who he is.

After earning a degree in Fermentation Science from the University of California at Davis in 1973, Bob held a harvest crush position at Louis Martini winery, where he says he truly learned how to make wine. He continued his winemaker journey at Concannon Vineyard in Livermore, California. While there, Bob helped update the winery's century-old facility. He oversaw the production of all of their wines including Petite Sirah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Sauvignon Blanc and a got his first experience working with international grapes with a Russian varietal, Rkatsiteli.

In 1981, Bob became the winemaster/production manager at Stag's Leap Wine Cellars in Napa Valley. During his four years at Stag's Leap, he worked with Warren Winiarski producing world-class Cabernet Sauvignon along with Merlot, Petite Sirah, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc.

Bob then spent two years at Guenoc, again as winemaker and production manager. From 1987 to 1996, he was winemaker and vice president of production at St. Sup??ry in Napa Valley. He supervised the building of the winery and was responsible for overseeing the winemaking for all of the St. Sup??ry programs.

In 1996, Bob started his own consulting business called Wine Production Specialists. As a consultant, he managed production, blending and bottling more than 450,000 cases of premium wine for six clients annually. Bob's experience and reputation as a world-class winemaker have made him a sought-after consultant internationally. He has done so on projects in Chile and the Republic of Georgia. He also taught the Advanced Winemaking and Winery Management course at Napa Valley College. In addition to crafting Broman wines, Bob also consults for other wineries.

Bob's passion for family and wine led him to create Broman Cellars in 1996. It is this expression of artistry, love, experience, family and friends that makes Broman Cellars special.
