The Kirchhoff family lives and farms south of Clarksburg, CA, on the Sacramento River Delta. The fertile soils and warm days of the Clarksburg Appellation allow for strong vine growth, with the Delta breeze allowing the vines to cool down and rest at night. The result is nothing short of excellence.
Growing grapes is more than an occupation in our family. It is a passion which drives us day in and day out to produce the highest quality achievable. When it comes to the grape growing process, our approach is “hands on”. Led by Craig Kirchhoff, our estate vineyards are hand pruned, picked, and tended. We utilize dry farming techniques to evoke the most flavorful expression that our land has to offer. And by following organic and sustianable practices, we are preserving it for future generations to come.
When it comes to winemaking, our approach is “hands off”. Under the direction of Winemaker Clayton Kirchhoff, we try to do as little to manipulate the wine as possible. There are no added sugars, acids, or tannins to the wine, and using spontaneous fermentation means no yeasts are added either. What we get in the end is a pure, natural product that we are proud to put our name upon.
We truly hope you enjoy the wine as much as we love making it. CHEERS!
