Bell, cayenne, white, black, you name it,
every kind of pepper is in here. This is all
kinds of pepper. Sausage, the slightest hint
of orange peel, cocoa powder, strawberries
and boysenberries create a midpalate that
rolls into gorgeously silky tannins. Both a
delicate and geeky wine, the Cabernet Franc
is a fun one to have in the arsenal.

Brook & Bull Cellars is a return to Ashley Trout’s roots of varietally driven, nuanced, and
intricately balanced wines. Sourcing from top vineyard sites, Trout creates wines that reflect
her palate and that can be appreciated now or aged over the next decade. Whether it’s
conversation or dinner, these wines will undoubtedly fit the occasion.
Our wines are hand-crafted from vine to bottle, made with small lots sourced from carefully
tended vineyards. Alcohol to acid, phenolics to tannin, balance is always our goal.
Brook trout, much like winemaker Ashley Trout, are native to the east coast whereas bull trout,
like our nation’s best wines, thrive in the Pacific Northwest. Both thrive in the harshest of
conditions, much like the best wine grapes; Brook & Bull Cellars is the confluence. Welcome to
the best of both worlds.
