Seebass Vineyards is located in the Mendocino Appellation, where rugged coastlines, breathtaking beaches, majestic redwood forests and America’s Greenest Wine Region beckon you to a slower pace. Our family estate sits in the lush Russian River Valley between the Mayacamas and Coastal Mountain ranges.
Family Estate History
In 1988 Brigitte Seebass purchased the property now known as Seebass Vineyards. Formerly a pear orchard decades before it was planted under grape, the historic barns and drying sheds still remain much as they were nearly one hundred years ago. Brigitte replanted and improved the vineyard as time went on, replacing less productive varietals with Chardonnay, Syrah, Merlot, and Grenache. She left the vines planted in the late 1800’s as old-vine Zinfandel that today produce some of the most prized grapes in the region. Our farming has always been hand-harvested, sustainable, fish-friendly and directed towards producing the best quality fruit.
Seebass Family Wines reflects the work and resources of three generations. The family continues to manage the vineyard and the grape growing business. In 2011, Brigitte’s daughter Michelle Myrenne Willoughby established the winemaking operations with her husband Scott Willoughby. Their son Aidan has grown up on the vineyard, riding tractors, picking grapes and helping deliver and sort the fruit at the wineries.
Since 2011, our wines have earned a reputation for top-quality, small-lot, Estate-grown wines that continue to be awarded top accolades. Our wines continue to impress discerning critics, and in 2014, Michelle and Scott opened their Anderson Valley tasting room, to share these wines with old friends and new.
