Kathryn Kennedy Estate Vineyard
Update 2015 – While the acreage at our Estate vineyard has been reduced by residential development to less than one acre, those original Cabernet Sauvignon vines that do continue to grow near Pierce Road will be made and bottled under Kathryn’s iconic silver and black signature label.
“After 35 years, working alongside Kathryn Kennedy, her son Marty Mathis continues their commitment to growing and making world class sustainable wines.”
100% Cabernet Sauvignon. The vines cover gentle slopes in Saratoga, California on the inland side of the Santa Cruz Mountains. In 1973 eight acres of vines were planted on their own roots. Excellent soil, a climate possessing just the right amount of marine influence, and personal attention combine to yield outstanding grapes. Each vintage is grown by hand and vinified in small open top vats followed by gentle barrel aging with 90% French oak, (50% new). The result is big, full-flavored wine with deep color and a decade or more of aging potential.
Production winery only; not open to visitors.
