The Argonauts of the California Gold Rush embodied the pioneering spirit, leaving behind everything in search of adventure and opportunity. We tapped into that spirit for our Brandy – pushing the boundaries of brandy making to explore what California Brandy can be.
THE ARGONAUT PROCESS
We are one of the few brandy makers that own and manage the production process from start to finish. We are the grape grower, the winemaker, the distiller and master blender.
A delicious cocktail starts with great Brandy. Explore our archive of classic cocktail recipes as well as original drinks from our favorite bartenders.
Our “Brandy Queen”, Rita Hansen, is a master distiller and blender and second generation winemaker. Rita applies her vast knowledge to all steps of the Argonaut process; from winemaking to distilling, aging, and blending.
