In the late 1880’s, an enterprising Swiss immigrant by the name of Andrew Frei gazed upon the rolling hills, gentle streams, and fertile soil of northern Sonoma and saw a wineglass full of opportunity. Frei worked to establish vinyards and a winery and by 1904 the winery was flourshing. The winery continued to grow over the years, and in the 1930’s its high quality grapes caught the eye of Julio Gallo. He was so impressed with the property that he eventually established an exclusive arrangement with the Frei family to buy all of their grapes. This relationship grew over the years, until the E. & J. Gallo Winery bought the Frei Brothers Winery in 1978.
Today, we honor and continue the tradition Andrew Frei established years ago with Frei Brothers Reserve. Fruit-forward and food friendly, these wines are made from select grapes from select Sonoma appellations.
Keeping with the tradition established by Andrew Frei in 1890, Frei Brothers Reserve wines are crafted to reveal the personality of the land and showcase the natural expression of the fruit.Frei Brothers Reserve wines possess a fruit-forward character with intense aromas and flavors that reflect Sonoma County’s unique micro-climates.
