Kistler Vineyards has been a small, family established and privately owned and operated winery dedicated to the vinification of world class Chardonnay and Pinot Noir using Old World Burgundian techniques applied to New World vineyards for the past 30 years. The Kistler plantings on Sonoma Mountain, situated on a hillside bench well suited for growing world class Chardonnay, are interlaced with the rare combination of red volcanic and fine grained chalky soils. These are east facing terraced vineyards, shadowed from the afternoon sun by giant redwoods. This is a remarkable marriage of site and orientation to the cooler trendings of the valley below. The vineyards are planted to California Heritage clones that Kistler selected for specifically to ripen to their standards which seek balance of fruit and acidity. They are some of the oldest Chardonnay vineyards in Sonoma County which are typically picked first during the harvest. Look for a focused mineral and citrus core lifted by bright acidity and finesse.
