The Miller Family Wines with Wes Hagen, WSET 2, SWE, AWS

Five Generations of California Farming,a Family of Winegrowers.

The Miller family’s California farming and ranching legacy dates to back to 1871, when William and Francis

Broome moved from England to the West Coast of California and began farming in southern Ventura County.

The farming legacy passed down to William Broome’s granddaughter Elizabeth, and following her marriage to

Robert Miller in 1942, the Miller Family became the steward of the farming business. In 1973, the Miller family

developed a vineyard in the Paso Robles highlands and named it French Camp for the Basque shepherds who

once populated the area. The area had a special allure thanks to the largest day/night temperature swings,

mineral rich soils and highest elevations in the regions. The 1400 acres of French Camp provide the Miller

Family with the highest quality fruit sources that help to create the highest quality wines.
