Brooking Vineyards is located in California’s first wine region, San Diego County. Our climate is perfect for the traditional British style of winemaking. In California it became know as Angelica.
Fortification is a method of wine production where grapes grown in a warm Mediterranean climate are fermented to a certain point at which time grape brandy is added to stop fermentation, thus retaining some of the natural sugars. But Prohibition and a change in public taste vanquished our local tradition to the dusty pages of history. With the recent interest in these styles of wine, such as Port and Sherry, Brooking Vineyards is leading the renaissance of our own local Angelicas.
