Korbel California Brandy is a unique brandy crafted exclusively in Sonoma County. This premium brandy is made with only the most refined California grapes before being infused with char. These barrels are specially charred during their construction to leave a layer of natural charcoal in contact with the brandy. This slow barrel aging, in contact with both the oak and the natural charcoal, gives the brandy its golden color and smooth, elegant flavor. The nose is filled with butterscotch aroma, and extra smooth taste with mild hints of lingering char, and toasted oak. We blend our fine Korbel Classic Brandy with the finest in natural flavors for the ultimate in luxury and smoothness.
Korbel California Brandy started shipping this premium Korbel California brandy in 1889, seven years after the debut of his champagne. By the turn of the century Korbel was internationally known as an award-winning brandy. Less than a decade later he has created an internationally renowned, award-winning brandy loved the world over. Since 1889, our Sonoma County winery has been producing award-winning California brandy. Handcrafted in small batches at our artisan distillery using only the finest California grapes, Korbel Brandy is masterfully aged to perfection in premium oak barrels. As a young man in Europe, Francis Korbel participated in the stormy Bohemian Revolution of 1848. For taking part in this uprising, Francis was captured and imprisoned, but escaped from jail one day by calmly walking out an unlocked gate – wearing civilian clothes brought to him by his mother and smoking a cigar. Francis fled Bohemia for New York, where he learned the fine art of cigar making. Captivated by the stories of the California Gold Rush, he moved to San Francisco and opened a storefront repairing cigar boxes with brothers Joseph and Anton. Eventually the Korbels found opportunity in the booming lumber business and opened a sawmill in the Russian River Valley of Sonoma County with their youngest brother, Winsel. The Korbel brothers discovered that the climate of the Russian River Valley was similar in nature to the French Champagne region and was ideal for fine winemaking. Paying homage to his European heritage and devoted to producing only the best, Francis Korbel mastered the art of producing fine handcrafted brandies while also creating premium champagnes using the traditional méthode champenoise. It is Francis Korbel’s rebellious spirit, century-old tradition, and passion for producing only the finest California brandies that lives on in every glass of Korbel.
