As Humboldt County’s first 2nd generation winemaker, Andrew Morris had the unique opportunity to train and apprentice with his step-father, Joe Collins. Collins is considered a Humboldt wine pioneer and is widely credited with helping to establish commercial production of wine from Southern Humboldt grapes through his consulting and support of most of the early vineyards in the area. The winery continues it’s commitment to Humboldt grapes by working closely with the small growers in the area. Currently, over 75% of the wine produced by Briceland is from Humboldt grown grapes most of which are farmed Organically in tiny hillside vineyards including some dating back to the late ’70’s and early ’80’s & 90’s.
