The story behind the Bradley Family Winery
Bradley Family Winery was established in 2012 in the Santa Ynez Valley of California. Starting with 200 vines of Syrah and Sauvignon Blanc planted on their own property, today they grow and manage over 6,500 vines consisting of Syrah, Sauvignon Blanc, Grenache, Grenache Blanc, Tempranillo, and Sangiovese. Bradley Family Winery currently produces 300-400 cases per vintage.
Our first bottled vintage (the 2012 Sauvignon Blanc Adobe Canyon) debuted at the the 2014 Southern Exposure Festival.
The Story behind the name
When we planted our first vines on our property, they were separated into 2 small blocks (100 vines each). One block was planted with Syrah and the other with Sauvignon Blanc. White block for one daughter, Kym, and Red block for our other daughter, Michelle representing them being direct opposites of each other's nature and personalities. Today we call this the K&M Vineyard. With involvement from all members of the family, from vineyard care to winemaking, it was a way to keep the family united together with each other, so the name became Bradley Family Winery.
