John Dysonís initial wine investment began in 1979 when John Dyson initiated several viticultural experiments using various varieties, rootstocks and trellising techniques at his Millbrook property. From one acre of vineyard in 1979 to over 1,000 today, Mr. Dyson owns and operates four separate properties: Millbrook Vineyards & Winery in the Hudson Valley, NY: Villa Pillo Estate in Tuscany, Italy; Williams & Selyem in Sonoma County, CA; and Pebble Ridge Vineyards in the North Central Coast region of California comprising of Vista Verde vineyard.
John Graziano is the Vice President and Winemaker at Millbrook Vineyards & Winery. John was born and raised in Rye, NY, and attended Cornell University where he studied Fruit Crop Production, including courses in chemistry and viticulture. Cornellís proximity to the vineyards of the Finger Lakes gave John the excuse to indulge his interest in wine. He graduated from Cornell University in 1981, with degrees in Plant Pathology and Entomology. In 1984, he was asked by John Dyson to be the opening winemaker for Millbrook Vineyards, and he has remained the only wine maker at the winery since its establishment.
The 2013 vintage will be the first year our recently planted Riesling vines will be producing fruit. While we await the release of our first Hudson River Region Riesling, our winemaker did produce a dry Riesling with Finger Lakes fruit that is currently available for purchase in our Tasting Room.
Our Hunt Country Collection (White, Rosť and Red) is in full release once again with new blends and new label imagery. To support the Millbrook Hunt's open space goals, Millbrook Winery will make a donation to the Hunt for every bottle of our Hunt Country wines sold at the winery.
