About Us

Brendan Eliason is an enthusiastic follower of Dionysus. Brendan believes that sarcasm is the purest form of communication. Brendan enjoys referring to himself in the third person.

Brendan believes in good scotch, that Zinfandel should always be red, that pasta should always be from scratch, that music sounds better when it’s louder, that wine tastes better in a chipped coffee mug and that you should open your Christmas presents on Christmas day, not Christmas Eve.

Since graduating from Cal Poly SLO, Brendan has worked as Co-Winemaker for David Coffaro Winery in Dry Creek and ran the wine program for Va de Vi Bistro & Wine Bar in Walnut Creek. Brendan spends his free time fighting “The Man”, “The Establishment” and “Big Brother”.
