Winemaking Philosophy

The Spirit Of Kenwood

We’re all explorers on a restless pursuit for untamed flavors - flavors that are the essence of Sonoma’s wildest terroirs.

We enjoy the land every day and are passionate about supporting it.

Our winemakers are hands-on in this pursuit; they personally check the lay of the land, using all their senses to evaluate each vineyard, talking to the growers and tasting the grapes in every ranch. Nothing is picked until the winemakers are confident it is ready. We don’t settle for the status quo; we let the grapes speak for themselves. Our winemakers are always experimenting with the best way to bring out the most characterful notes and the flavors that tell our story of discovery.

Adventure is in our DNA. We enjoy the land every day and are passionate about supporting restoration projects to protect state parks, green spaces and natural habitats for wildlife. Our outdoor lifestyle isn’t just our livelihood - it’s our wild spirit and it’s what reconnects to what matters.
