People of Montecito: Brian Brunello

What’s your Montecito Story?

I was born here. My dad made wine here. All varietals but he specialized in Cabernet and Zinfandel, his two favorites. My job in the operation was all of it. You pick the grapes, you wash the bottles – winemaking isn’t as glamorous as the media makes it look. It’s hard work. We have a lot of hardworking local winemakers. And these guys are important to the local economy and we like supporting them.
