B.R. Cohn is a beautiful winery in Glen Ellen California, in the Napa area, that opened in 1984 and was known as Olive Hill Estate Cabernet. Bruce Cohn was the original founder of this property and originally made extra virgin olive oil. As Bruce Cohn was growing up he was exposed to a lot of music at a young age because his dad sang Italian Arias and even ran a music studio. B.R. Cohn sponsors the B.R. Cohn Charity Fall Music Festival in which they hope to bring the two worlds of good music and even better wine together. In their earlier days, B.R. Cohn started to sell grapes to different wineries nearby them and was not until 1984 that Mr. Cohn produced his own wine.
B.R. Cohn is known as one of the best wineries in the Napa area. He teamed up with Helen Turley, after being in the business for many years. To date, they have a total of nine different types of grapes growing on their property with most of them being their famous Cabernet Sauvignon. In addition to having great wine, their tasting room is extraordinary. Every one of these types of grapes is each treated and cared for differently, which is one of the main reasons why they are as good as they are said to be. This winery uses a more hands-on approach to harvesting their grapes by picking each group of berries row by row.
B.R. Cohn winery has had very good ratings from Wine Spectator and even charted in the top 50 of the best wineries in the world. This winery has views of astonishing grapevines with a lot of rolling hills as far as you can see. B.R. Cohn always has really nice weather that is a mix of cool ocean breeze and warm sunny days. The staff is always being complimented by people saying how kind and helpful they were to their guests. Not only do they produce some really good quality wine they also make one of the best extra virgin olive oil in the U.S. and even the world. One of the reasons they are producing great products is because of the soil they grow their crops in.
B.R. Cohn Winery is blessed to be sitting on top of multiple hot water springs. This allows the grapes and olives to grow year round avoiding cold temperatures that harm these plants. Also, the soil that is being used to grow these plants drains the water perfectly and does not flood. B.R. Cohn has easily one of the best selections of wine and extra virgin olive oil.
