The People Behind The Wine
We call ourselves a family because this business is a part of each of us. From the wine to the experience, we've pooled together a team of talented individuals who care to make each part spectacular and show you how Brennan truly does pair with life!
Pat & Trellise BrennanOwners
After purchasing the Historic McCrary House in 2000, Dr. Pat and Trellise Brennan started Brennan Vineyards by planting the first vines of Viognier, Syrah, and Cabernet in 2002.
Originally Brennan Vineyards was a grape supplier to Dr. Brennan’s good friend Dr. Richard Becker (Becker Vineyards).
In 2004 winery construction began and the rest is history!
Todd WebsterExecutive Winemaker
Todd Webster joined Brennan Vineyards in 2007 as a winemaking apprentice to Dr. Brennan. Todd had a thirst for all things wine and completed formal viticulture and enology coursework at both Texas Tech University and Washington State University.
Today, he is the man behind the collection of eighteen wines that make up the Brennan Vineyards portfolio.
His winemaking philosophy has developed into a minimalist approach of blending old world traditions with modern innovations. By doing so he has succeeded in producing wines that are expressive of the Texas regions from which they are grown.
