Consider this...

No busses,  no minors,  no smoking,  no frowning and  no guest dogs. Now, if you don’t mind what we don’t have, you are sure to like what we do have:

*Authentic hand crafted wines of quality and conscience.
*Personal and respectful winegrower attention.

BY APPOINTMENT ONLY With appointment only visitation not only do we enjoy the respectful company of serious wine novices and experts but so do they. We are not about the party, we are about the wine and its journey into your glass. With fifty years of winemaking experience, we are very close to getting it right. Join us for a sometimes humorous, sometimes irreverent, always stimulating organoleptic experience at Westbrook Wine Farm Vineyard and Winery. Thank you. 559-868-3499

Welcome to Westbrook Wine Farm

the Winery

Westbrook Wine Farm is a vineyard and winery in the Sierra Nevada Foothills of eastern Madera County, California, near Bass Lake and Yosemite National Park. Our mountain vineyards are planted to  field blends of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Malbec, Merlot, Petit Verdot, Gros Verdot and Carmenere. We practice sustainable farming and minimalist winemaking. We make our wine in the traditional Claret style by co-fermenting grapes, rather than by making separate varietal wines and blending them. Our Fait Accompli includes six and our Museum, three of the eight red varieties permitted for use in Bordeaux or Meritage style wines.

"So while we're at it. The 2009 Museum Red. I really like the structure of your reds. They remind me of Bordeaux in the front with some Cal. in the back."

It's very rare that you get to sit with the winemaker himself and be educated, with great detail, about every nuance and decision that goes into making their wines.  I've never had an experience quite like this before. Ray is witty, patient, and bursting with knowledge when it comes to sharing his passion for winemaking. And the wines...everything we tasted was a delight to the palette. There's something here for everyone, but you have to go there to taste for yourself. You will not only leave here with a memorable experience, like we did, but you'll be leaving with a carload of wine and be telling your friends to visit, just as we did. So thankful we made an appointment! Enjoy!

Tonight, your Magnificent (Fait Accompli) Evolution waited a decade to perfectly lift all the flavor notes of our sautéed chard, leeks, roasted red beets, garlic and potatoes, and bleeding NY steaks. Great things happen to those who wait. I thank the heavens for your craft.

A truly remarkable experience is awaiting you at Westbrook Wine Farm. Perhaps because we, as grower / winemakers, personally greet and pour for all of our visitors, all the time. Possibly, it's our stone fireplace and the rustic authenticity of our earth-bermed Foothill Barn style winery. It could even be our earned reputation for wines which will hold their own among the world's best. No doubt, your short trip through our wooded hillsides will help set the mood.

What we think you will find even more remarkable will not only be in front but, also alongside you. Young adults, seasoned citizens, expert and novice alike sharing their views and passion for good wine and good people. People like you, leisurely sharing civilized conversation and their wine experience with us. We are proud to admit that we have never had a guest with whom we would not wish to shake or hold hands. Truly remarkable!

Please call 559-868-3499 or email us at to secure your confirmed reservation. We are looking forward to meeting you.

A: Honey, ginger and lime!

We can recommend with much confidence our 2009 Viognier “Old School” which boasts layers of much the same sensations and flavors as your signature dish.

It’s oak barrel fermented and lees aged for complexity and spice.  It also has a very natural way of fusing with garlic to form a rich, nutty expression.

Glad you asked Ron, thanks.
