Brandon and Gregory


Brandon Muller, Vintner

Growing up in suburban orange county, Brandon was unlikely to become a grape grower and vintner. He graduated from USC with a business degree and an emphasis in real estate finance and spent the first part of his career working in commercial real estate finance and investment. His work led him to the bay area, where he and his husband Gregory developed a life-guiding appreciation for wine, a drive to own property in wine country, and a desire to become active participants in the wine community. They were inspired by the area's natural beauty and inherently drawn to the outdoors. In 2017, Brandon and Gregory invested in an undeveloped piece of land in knights valley with exceptional vineyard potential. The following year, they made their first vintage of wine with the guidance of a renowned napa valley winemaker and with home-winemaking equipment. This incredible experience drove Brandon and Gregory to jump into the business two feet first, culminating in the acquisition of brookshire vineyard and the start of Brandon Gregory estate in 2019. The evolution continues!

Gregory Roberts, Vintner

Born and raised in northern California, Gregory grew up around vineyards and agriculture but never thought it would one day be his future. As an adult, he moved to redondo beach to live the beach life and experience a different side of California. He surfed, worked in hospitality, and eventually met Brandon. When Brandon's work temporarily moved the two of them to san francisco, Gregory showed him the beauty of northern California and sonoma and napa's wine country. Gregory found himself with a deeper appreciation for his northern California roots, and he and Brandon decided they would someday buy a home in the area. They moved back to southern California and launched a residential real estate investment firm where Gregory used his natural talent in interior design to focus on the aesthetics of the company's projects.

It would be ten years before they owned land in wine country. Humbled and impressed with the warm welcome and helpful nature of those in the community, Brandon and Gregory quickly realized their vision to grow grapes, produce wine, and begin Brandon Gregory estate.
