WINEMAKERS

Mark Daigle, Bob Barrow, Daniel Alcorso

BROTHERHOOD, AMERICA'S OLDEST WINERY
Established 1839 MEET THE WINEMAKERS

Last year, our winemaking team of Cesar Baeza, Mark Daigle, and Bob Barrow welcomed a new addition. Daniel Alcorso joins us, enhancing our team by applying his practical skills in blending, analysis, cellar work and vineyard expansion. Combined, the four total 106 years of experience!

Mark Daigle has the role of Production Manager and engineer, and is referred to as “The Fixer.” When he isn't running our bottling lines like well-oiled machines, Mark can often be found in the workshop, operating heavy equipment and supervising the production lines. Mark's extensive background includes working in the vineyards of Chappelet in Napa Valley, Maison Bertrand Novack in Champagne, and in the cellars at Chanson Père et Fils in Beaune, France. Mark is an essential and dedicated part of the winemaking team with over 30 years of experience at Brotherhood.

Working directly with Mark and Cesar is Winemaker Bob Barrow. Bob graduated from Virginia Tech in 1998, with a BS in Biology and a Chemistry Minor. He worked both in the vineyard and the winery at Williamsburg Winery, Virginia before starting at Brotherhood in 1999. A native of Dutchess County, Bob spends his time both in the lab and cellars creating Brotherhood's blends, and riddling or disgorging our Méthode Champenoise sparkling wine. In the fall, you'll find him on the crush pad with Mark, pressing the tons of grapes that Brotherhood processes every year.

Daniel Alcorso, an ex-pat from New Zealand, whose broad capabilities in still, sparkling and fortified winemaking has bolstered our dynamic trio of professionals. Daniel received his BS in Agricultural Sciences and Oenology from The University of Adelaide in Australia. He began his career at Southcorp Wines, Wynns Coonawarra Estate, and Lindeman's Wines, followed by Corbans Wines in New Zealand. Daniel became Vineyard Manager and Winemaker at Tarara Winery, Senior Vintage Winemaker at Casella Wines, and ultimately winemaker at Crown Valley Winery in Missouri. Daniel has been at Brotherhood for a year now, where he's helped Bob and Mark in the cellars, in the on-site demonstration vineyard, and in our newly-expanded tank room, assisting with blending and quality control practices.

DRY RIESLING

This surprisingly dry, white wine offers bright aromas of fresh lime, tropical fruit and has a light mineral quality. Very crisp, with the mouthwatering taste of Granny Smith apples, it is well-balanced with a lingering finish.

PINOT NOIR

This wine is light brick red in color, has a nose of fresh berries and plums with a hint of violets. It also displays bright fruit flavors of cranberry, cherry and black tea which create a light-to-medium bodied wine with a layered complexity staying true to form.

SWEET LOLLY RED

Introducing a wine that is meant for good times, casual get-togethers and girls' night out! This wine was made for the fun, flirty and fruity flavors that know how to have a party on your palate! Serve this chilled with your favorite BBQ foods and best friends!
