I haven’t sent our wines to many reviewers because we tend to keep supply and demand in balance as it stands. The best place to read reviews in on our reviews is on PrinceofPinot.com. I am pleased that we have had wines on the All American Lists each of the last 5 years. All our wines that the Prince has reviewed can be found here: http://www.princeofpinot.com/winery_owner/366/

About Briceland Vineyards

Briceland Vineyards has been producing wine in Southern Humboldt County since 1985. My step-father Joe Collins started the winery with my mother Maggie Carey in 1985. They had begun researching the viability of planting grapes in our area with a small experimental vineyard in the late 70’s and Joe is widely credited with establishing commercial wine-growing in our area.

Maggie & Joe built the winery up slowly over 20+ years, gradually increasing production as more local vineyards came online. About 75% of our production is from Humboldt County grapes, almost all of which are farmed organically in tiny hillside vineyards. The remaining 25% is from Mendocino and Lake Counties. We take pride in supporting our local community and our community has supported us as well – over 90% of our wine sells within 75 miles of the winery without the aid of brokers or distributors.

Briceland Vineyards has long been a proponent of organic farming. Most of the grapes used to make the wines offered above have been farmed organically. Some of the vineyards that we work with are so small that they no longer maintain the certification, but they continue to farm organically. If you’d like details on this, let me know.

PS. Anyone looking to visit the scenic Lost Coast or Redwood Parks/Avenue of the Giants, please consider dropping by. We are located about 4 hours north from the Bay Area and we are more than happy to see visitors. I promise to make it worthwhile for any guest that mentions Berserkers.

Order in, thanks Andrew!

I’m in for the 5 Pinots and a Zin.

Cutting back on BD this year, but always enjoy the Briceland pinots, and happy to restock. Thanks, Andrew!

Michael

Order in, and as was the case last year, I can’t limit myself to a single offer, but instead went the custom route. One reason I look forward to BerserkerDay each year is that it gives me the opportunity to try new producers that I might otherwise never have known about, and Briceland is one of the brightest stars in that bunch. Fans of cooler climate California wines would be well served to give them a chance.

Andrew,

Order in, always a pleasure speaking with you.

Seth

Order in. Looking forward to speaking with you again, Andrew.

Thanks to Paul, Seth, Mike, Michael & Corey for your ongoing support.

Thanks to all of the other subscribers for pitching in to keep the board going and for giving us a shot!

A couple of people asked about the Ishi Pishi Ranch Humboldt Zin by phone. It is an unusual wine in that it is brighter and some say lighter than any of our PN’s. As a result, it is the first red I pour when we have tastings. It is very full of flavor and aroma and has put on weight in the bottle. It is still one of the lightest CA Zins you’s find.

I look forward to hearing from any of you that are on the fence or those that have not yet had time to deal with all the offers. pileon I can be reached: andrew@bricelandvineyards.com or 707 923-2429.

Order in for BDX standard. I’m looking forward to trying these. Thanks Andrew.

Order in for The Vineyards!

Andrew

Sent you an email requesting a Vineyard 6 pack.

Likewise!

I’ve loved my Briceland wines from last BD and have sent a note over to try a few more this year. And along with great wine, I really appreciate the personal and gracious customer service from Andrew!

Not sure how much Andrew has left, but he’s live for everybody else now!

Thanks for doing what you do, Todd!

Yes. I still have wine. I am getting low on the PV. I think I only have enough for a couple more of the BDX Specials.

Looking forward to hearing from everyone…

Just waiting for the return email to finalize my case!

Order in for BDX and a PV. Got a call from Andrew approximately 17 seconds after emailing. Great chat. Thanks for the personal call, nice to speak to the brains behind the operation!

Ordered last BD and was glad I did. Upped the ante this year

Lee & Alex - I appreciate the orders and the bump.

Adam: Sorry about the delay and thanks for your order as well.

OK - We are down to 1 BDX Special left.

There were only 12 cases of the PV to begin with and what’s left after those 2 bottles are gone is mine.

I hope you got my email order, Andrew, two of those PVs have my name on them!

Hi Chris,

Yes, I have you covered. [cheers.gif]
