Winemaker, Canard Vineyard

Winemaker, Brian Graham

I studied winemaking in France. First in Bordeaux and then in Burgundy. Returned to Napa and have been making wine ever since.

Country born: United States

Education: Studied in Bordeaux. Interned at Chateau Roquefort .

Years in the wine industry: 10-15 years

Winemaking Philosophy:
Make the best wine possible from the whatever Mother Nature gives me. Every year is different and that's what makes winemaking so exciting. It's not too difficult to make good wine when all the conditions are perfect. The measure of a good winemaker is to see how he or she handles the difficult vintages.
