Michelle and Brock Waterman - Brochelle Vineyards
Starting with nothing but determination and a dream, Brock and Michelle Waterman found the perfect patch of land on the westside of Paso Robles on which to start their life and business together. Keeping their day jobs, they came home every night and tended to the nearly 15,000 newly planted vines. The first harvest came unexpectedly early, thanks to very heavy rainfall. In 1998, they harvested enough grapes to make a mere 50 cases, and the very first vintage of Brochelle (Brock + Michelle) Zinfandel was born.
Throughout the past twenty years, theye’ve weathered the many ups and downs of the economy – but never deviated from their passion and pursuit of excellence. They adamantly pursue enticing nothing but the best wines possible from their vineyard. They care deeply about every step of the process - from pruning, harvesting, bottling and absolutely everything in between. No detail is left unnoticed. Brock and Michelle believe that love, indeed, is always found in the details. Their intention is that these fine points fully reveal themselves to you in each and every bottle Brochelle Vineyards produces.
