About Inconnu

Inconnu Wine is a California-based winery founded in 2012 by Laura Brennan Bissell. The winery is focused on producing wines that reflect the subtlety and elegance possible in California, through a combination of thoughtful terroir selection and respect for classical winemaking philosophies.

Brennan Bissell is committed to working with organic and regeneratively farmed vineyards, seeking out cooler climates and areas with greater diurnal shifts, complex soil compositions, and family-owned parcels. In the cellar, she takes a gentle approach, allowing the fruit to express itself without heavy-handed interventions. Patience and a soft touch are key, as she believes these solve problems more effectively than excessive manipulation.

Inconnu's wines are driven by acidity and minerality, while embracing the perfect ripeness that California's climate can provide. They showcase a balance and constancy, without shying away from physiological ripeness. Brennan Bissell avoids new oak, preferring 2-3 year old barrels, and meticulously tops up the barrels to prevent oxidation.

For Brennan Bissell, winemaking is a synesthetic experience that engages all the senses. She is guided by a "quiet optimism" and a desire to distill her wines into a poetic form, rather than dissecting them clinically. Inconnu aims to offer an authentic expression of California terroir, through thoughtful, minimalist winemaking practices.
