Brooke Ide

Arizona winemaker Brooke Ide is a native Phoenician. After pursuing her degree from the Southwest Wine Center at Yavapai College, she worked for Caduceus Cellars/Merkin Vineyards in the Verde Valley for three years, followed by a harvest with Kent Callaghan of Callaghan Vineyards in Elgin, Arizona.

Brooke then built her own winery in Elgin in 2018 and started production in 2019. She sources fruit from vineyards in Sonoita/Elgin and Willcox, ensuring she works with high quality, thoughtful viticulturalists in each region. Brooke enjoys picking with the crew in the vineyard, processing the fruit by hand and babying every barrel of wine.
