Broadside produces wines focused on purity and true varietal expression. We favor balance and simplicity, giving consumers a window to the promise of the central coast and varietal character.. Our winemaking employs a natural approach in that our wines are minimally handled to best express the grape, site and vintage. We harvest at lower sugars and use little to no new oak to create wines of balance and finesse that make sense on the dinner table.
We are committed to making the best choices for our wines from step one in the vineyard until they are on the tables of our customers. We believe that a progressive philosophy towards the way our grapes our grown, processed, vinified, and packaged is essential to the quality of our wines and the integrity of our business.
Firstly, all of our fruit is sourced from sustainable sources. These vineyards are either SIP, GLOBALG.A.P. certified, or both. With our long-term commitments and Stephy's direct involvement in these vineyards, we steer farming towards a simple, hands-off approach keeping both chemical (organic or otherwise) and water use to an absolute minimum.
We are the first solar powered winery in Paso Robles' Tin City, and have taken several steps beyond that to limit impact on our immediate environment. Planned and designed with ConciousBuild Inc., we utilized green building materials and standards for our construction. Furthermore, we recapture all of the water used in our cellar and crushpad (including rainwater) to create compost tea for irrigation. We also have complimentary Tesla chargers installed for visitors.
As packaging wine can be decidedly inefficient and wasteful, we've sought out sustainable packaging partners to provide the most responsible options available. From our corks to capsules and lightweight glass, our packaging is completely recyclable and chosen to keep our carbon footprint in check.
