Staking a Claim in Brandy
The Argonauts of the California Gold Rush embodied the pioneering spirit, leaving behind everything in search of adventure and opportunity. They tapped into that spirit for their Brandy - pushing the boundaries of brandy-making to explore what California Brandy can be.
Argonaut Brandy is distilled from flavorful California-grown grape varieties. Aged in ex-bourbon barrels and its blends are selected from some of the rarest, oldest lots of brandy in California.
One of the few brandy makers that own and manage the production process from start to finish. They are the grape grower, the winemaker, the distiller and master blender. This involvement in every step of the process allows Argonaut to maintain the highest quality standards at every step of the process.
