Daniel Farber wandered the world working at various distilling houses, including a time in the Cognac region of France. He settled in the Santa Cruz area of northern California in the heart of wine country and set about tinkering with distilling local wines into Brandy. Jeff Emory is the winemaker behind Santa Cruz Mountain Vineyard. If there is one thing that you need to make great Brandy it is a steady supply of great wine. Daniel and Jeff partnered up. 
The result is Osocalis distillery where Daniel takes Jeff’s wine and blends it with other varietals in the region—focusing on Colombard and Pinot Noir—to distill their new twist on an old classic—California Brandy. They produce four different Brandies, three traditional and one from local apples.
