Nearly 30 years after Brookside was sold, on July 3, 2008, the rebirth of the legend began. Tim Bacino, the sixth generation of the Vaché and Biane families, son of Rosanne Vaché Biane Bacino (Pomp’s daughter), is following his heart and passion to restart a family tradition based on their rich California winemaking history. Brookside winery is the oldest winemaking family in California, established in 1832.
Tim and his wife, Susanné, along with their daughter, Gabriella (the seventh generation, GEN 7), are embarking together on this winemaking journey. Their dream is to reestablish the preeminence of California’s “first family” of wine.
“There’s a little bit of history in every bottle.”
