Their highly acclaimed Humboldt Brut Sparkling will be available to sample as will other wines such as their 2012 Dark Horse Vineyard Mendocino Syrah and 2013 Humboldt Chardonnay.
Briceland Vineyards has been producing award winning wines since 1985 and is known as a leading producer of wines from local Humboldt grapes. Recently Briceland Vineyards’ wines have earned numerous awards including:
• 2013 Phelps Vineyard Humboldt Pinot Noir – Gold Medal and Best of Humboldt, Sonoma-Marin Fair
• 2012 Humboldt Merlot – Silver Medal, Sonoma-Marin Fair
• 2012 Dark Horse Vineyard Mendocino Syrah – Gold Medal, TexSom International Wine Competition, Dallas

Briceland is proud of its close relationships with its grape farmers, in Humboldt, Lake and Mendocino Counties. More than two thirds of the grapes that are used in Briceland’s wines are grown in Humboldt, most of which come from small, organically farmed family vineyards scattered throughout the Eel and Mattole River valleys.
The Spring Open House is a longstanding tradition. Each year Briceland holds tasting events during Memorial Day and Thanksgiving weekends as a way to say thank you to loyal customers and to share the fun with new friends. All the wines that are poured during the Open House will be available to purchase. Briceland’s wines are also available at stores and fine restaurants throughout Humboldt County, at the winery, and can be shipped.
Neighboring Whitethorn Winery is open for tasting on the same schedule for Memorial Day Weekend. Customers can also look for the new Briceland Vineyards Tasting Room on Avenue of the Giants in Miranda, which is scheduled to open in early June.
