In the Heart of California's Shenandoah Valley.

In 1996 Oliver Bray and Robin Bray established Bray Vineyards on 50 acres of prime Shenandoah Valley vine land. By 2001, Bray Vineyards was supplying Zinfandel and Sangiovese grapes to well known local wineries like Vino Noceto and Montevina and making a name for themselves and their grapes as well as plans for opening their own winery. In 2004, they brought in John Hoddy as their winemaker and by April of that year Bray Vineyards opened its doors to the public for the first time.
