Mindful Wine Journal: Producer Spotlight
Brooks Wine | Willamette Valley, Oregon
Founded in 1998, Brooks is a reflection of the visionary Jimi Brooks. His reverence for the land and vines made him a practitioner of organic and Biodynamic farming. Janie Brooks Heuck and winemaker Chris Williams’ approach is simple: seek natural balance in the vineyard and cellar to show the true expression of terroir in their wines. Brooks is also a working market farm and garden, and operates according to its founding principles of promoting nourishment, community, sustainable land stewardship, and minimal intervention winemaking. Brooks is the only winery in America to be a Certified B Corp, a member of 1% For The Planet and Demeter-Certified Biodynamic.

Pairing Notes: So many foods! Especially Thai, Vietnamese, Chinese and Indian fare - anything with some heat.
