California is very dynamic, as climate, geography, topography and soil types change throughout the state. The extraordinary influence that each of these factors have on the taste profile, favor and aromatics of a wine is what makes each grape growing region unique. American Thread Vineyards is part of our Passport Series as the Brower Family has partnered with long-term growers in specific regions throughout California to produce wines known for their impeccable quality and true varietal character specific to these regions. This educational series combines a modern brand with wines from their most sought-after appellations.

In 2014 the inaugural vintage of Coal Miner, a regal red blend was released. Similar to the history of winemaking, coal mining dates back thousands of years. While much coal mining remained local early on, a lively trade developed worldwide as embracing the earths natural resources became a way of life. The success of this new release extends beyond the glass as a portion of all proceeds are donated to The Health Wagon, a charitable organization that provides aid to poverty stricken areas of rural America helping less fortunate individuals, families and communities. The uniqueness of "Robinson Run No. 95" is that this is, still to this day, an active coal mine in West Virginia.
New to the United States as of 2014, yet an Italian staple since 1820 as two centuries of grape harvests make history.

Remembering the moments and creating the memories makes life experiences enjoyable and light as bubbles.
The Brower Family created Emerald Bay to promote a sustainable message with their personal commitment to furthering education towards sustainable and environmental winemaking practices. This process is essential in preserving the beauty of our environment and in keeping our bays’ pristine and emerald. California’s coastal grape growing region presents an ideal climate for Emerald Bay wines. Cool ocean breezes and coastal mountain ranges maintain moderate temperatures throughout the growing season enabling the grapes to stay on the vines longer.
As one of the oldest wineries in Monterey County, surpassing thirty-three years in business, there continues to be something special about family history and the environment it creates. Château Julien has had the same winemaker (Bill Anderson) since the Estate's inaugural vintage in 1982 allowing each wine to be consistent in both pricing and quality. The pride behind the wines is distinctive as each wine the Brower Family produces has something unique about it, making them different then many mainstream brands. The Brower family operates with one main goal, to produce wines for which customers will keep coming back.
Since 1982, our core company focus has been to produce quality wines that appeal to a wide range of consumers at an affordable price. Each and every wine the Brower Family produces is handcrafted from vineyard to bottle with one sole ambition, quality first. Their passion for exploring and showcasing the true character of wines produced on the Central Coast is truly recognizable.
"Whether it's classic Monterey County Chardonnay or an award-winning Merlot, we let our wines express themselves."
