I’ve had the dream to make wine since I was a kid. I’ve learned a tremendous amount about wine since then. Each year my friends and fellow vignerons John Caldwell (Yes, that John Caldwell, aka “JFC”) and Bill Sanderson (Madrone Ridge Winery) take a trip to investigate the practices of the best wineries of Europe. We draw inspiration, and continued passion from the knowledge shared. For me great wine is a continuing process and investment in improvement, from grape growing to winemaking, it is the driving force of B Wise Vineyards.
We work with the special terroir of our home vineyard in the Sonoma Valley as well as other special sites in Napa Valley and the Sonoma Coast. We invest all our passion into the winemaking process from start to finish. Our wines are expressions of this commitment to great wine and the vineyards in which they are grown.
Together with Massimo, Mark, Enrique, and the crew, we endeavor to produce authentic, graceful wines that you will find both inspiring and memorable.

Situated in the western Mayacamas foothills of the Sonoma Valley lies the beautiful and fast growing cult brand, B Wise Vineyards. Feast it Forward is elated for this well respected winery to join our network and lifestyle brand as our “Official Wine” partner. With 20 acres of their 100- acre ranch are planted in vines, the varied faces and slopes offer a variety of soil profiles with 6 different root stocks and 17 different clones, 6 of which are Cabernet Sauvignon. For B Wise Vineyards, making great wine is in part due to the success of the vineyards and their noblest of all quests is to uncover the purest expression of their special earth.
Sustainability is a lifestyle, not a buzz word. Although not certified organic, B Wise Vineyads farms sustainably and organically for the production of better wine and retaining responsible stewardship of the land. Within the 100-acres they foster a native ecosystem with oak, mazanita and madrones that provide ample room and cover for all sorts of wildlife including insects, owls, falcons, hawks, wild turkey, fox, coyotes, raccoon, deer and bobcats. Among the vines is rolling plant cover-crops of fesque, pea, alfalfa, mustard, California poppies, and other flowering and seed grasses.
