Where the Wine is Made
Kivelstadt Cellars was founded on the love of amazing California vineyards and to make honest wine from them. Focusing on the farming and minimalist winemaking, they craft wines that appeal to everyone, from casual to connoisseur. Founder Jordan Kivelstadt’s first vintage was 125 cases of Syrah in 2007. He sourced the Syrah from his family’s estate vineyard. He drew inspiration from both his new world experience and for European cuisine, art, and culture. In 2020 Kivelstadt opened California’s first Winegarten. Striving to create wine, and food, that maintains a fun, approachable, and accessible style while challenging the status quo of California winemaking.
