Brophy Clark Cellars is a unique partnership that combines the talents of winemaker John Clark with the viticulture expertise of his wife, Kelley Brophy Clark. Together John and Kelley have more than 30 years experience in the wine industry. Their goal is to produce the best wine possible from some of the Central Coast's most outstanding vineyards and to bring those wines to you at a good value.
The Clark's focus on Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and red Rhone blend of Grenache, Syrah and Mourvedre - varietals they feel excel in this region. Brophy Clark Cellars produces approximately 2,500 cases of wine annually. Working with small lots, John and Kelley are able to handcraft each wine and personally handle all phases of the winemaking process. Vineyard blocks are hand-selected by Kelley and John tailors winemaking techniques to each lot, bringing to life the varietal character and vineyard expression of the fruit.
