Rebrook Cellars, LLC, a business registered in Austin, Texas in 2021, is planning to begin operating at 15 Chateau Lane in Napa — the home of the Covert Estate.
What Now San Francisco reached out to Jason Rebrook, the applicant listed on a recently submitted winegrower license, but he was unavailable for comment.
Nevertheless, What Now was able to infer that Rebrook represents Lightburn Brands, a privately owned beverage company based in the Woodlands, Texas that describes its focus as “developing new brands and products while actively acquiring existing brands early in the life cycle that possess significant growth opportunities.”
For readers who are unfamiliar, Covert Estate is “the result of the collaboration and hard work of three families dedicated to the craft of winemaking” — “Cal and Pam Nicholson, library wine collectors and Vintners in Napa Valley; Dave and Laura Nestor, obsessive and extensive California wine collectors, equine hunters/jumpers and management gurus; and Julien Fayard, French winemaker, and Californian wine lovers with a legacy of making wine in both France and Napa Valley.”
Located in Valley “on the eastern hills of the Vacas Mountain Range in the Coombsville Appellation,” the winery “sits underground between the vineyard and the oak grove, and can only be seen from a bird’s-eye view,” according to its website.
What Now San Francisco will update the article should additional information become available.
