Our Philosophy: Producing the best wine possible starts in the vineyard.
Each wine delivers its own unique personality. Our team has over 35 years of experience and is committed to nurture our different vineyard sites into the next century so that each vine will bring incomparable wines year in and year out.
Our team’s winemaking style is well-suited to the winery’s focus on small lot production which are loyal clients are accustomed to here at Chateau O’Brien at Northpoint.
Our team wouldn’t be what it is without each person doing their best. Meet the new members to our team – Brad McCarthy and Nick Riffee. Brad McCarthy joins our family as our Wine Maker and Nick Riffee as our Assistant Wine Maker and Head Vineyard Manager! Their winemaking style is well-suited to the winery’s focus on small lot production which are loyal clients are accustomed to here at Chateau O’Brien at Northpoint.
“Our focus has always been that wines are made in the vineyard first,” explains Howard O’brien “and as no single bottling of ours is more than a few hundred cases, having Brad and Nick on board to create wines which bring out the best possible characteristics of each vineyard is something I am really excited about to say nothing of the fact I am looking forward to enjoying the whole process.”
