A veteran of the wine industry since the early 1970’s, Robert Brittan began his career in the Central Valley of California. Robert attended the University of California at Davis, graduating with a degree in Fermentation Science in 1981. Robert has made wines for Far Niente Winery, St. Andrews Vineyard and Stags’ Leap Winery. In addition to managing his own vineyard and crafting wines for Brittan Vineyards, Robert is the consulting winemaker for a few select vineyards in the Northern Willamette Valley.
A firm believer that wines are much more compelling as they age, Robert is committed to a minimalist winemaking style and partners with exceptional vineyard sites to craft wines that cellar beautifully.
Since 2012, Robert and his team have been crafting wines for Fairsing that are expressive and distinctive to the property. Robert’s enthusiasm for the varied exposures, geology, micro-climates, and selections across Fairsing Vineyard is reflected in his site-driven wines.
