About Winemaker Bill Brosseau

The Pinot Report: Pinot Rising Stars of 2005

It’s good that Bill Brosseau is an effective multi-tasker. In his position as winemaker at Testarossa Vineyards, he’s ably filling some big shoes left behind by departed winemaker Ed Kurtzman and making nearly a dozen interesting Pinots from a wide stable of vineyards up and down the California coast. He also helps manage his family’s Brosseau Vineyard, a terrific, up and coming vineyard for Pinot in the Gabilan Mountains next to Chalone Vineyard. He also makes and markets some nice small-lot Pinot and other wines from the Brosseau Vineyard under his own label, Gabilan Estate. Bill’s background includes a degree in viticulture and enology from U.C.-Davis, a stint as lab director at Pine Ridge Winery in Napa Valley and two years in the cellar at Chalone Vineyard before signing on as enologist at Testarossa in 2000. Bill believes in a broad understanding of all aspects of the wine business, a belief that’s critical for a wine entrepreneur these days. I’m looking forward to watching (and tasting) the results of his growth and progress.
