Kanzler Vineyards located in Sebastopol, CA specializes in growing and producing small lots of traditionally crafted Pinot Noir from exceptional vineyards in the cool but sunny hills of western Sonoma County in the Sonoma Coast AVA.
Kanzler Vineyards began in 1996 as the dream of Stephen and Lynda Kanzler. Planted in 1996, in a former apple orchard, near the town of Sebastopol, Kanzler Vineyard quickly developed a reputation for producing world class Pinot Noir fruit featured in award winning wines from some of the finest wineries in Northern California.
In 2004, the Kanzlers launched their own label using grapes grown exclusively from their vineyard. The first estate-bottled wine, Kanzler Vineyards, 2004 Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir and 2004 Sonoma Coast Reserve Pinot Noir were released in July, 2005. That wine garnered rave reviews, receiving a 93 from Wine Spectator, virtually unheard of for a first release. Kanzler Vineyards has an enviable record of producing world class Pinots consistently rated at 90+ points, with the 2007 vintage garnering a 96 point rating from Wine Spectator.
Because of the high demand, Kanzler Vineyards Pinot Noir is tightly allocated and only members of our mailing list can purchase wine directly from the winery. If you are interested in purchasing our wines, click here.
