Kastania 2012 “Proprietor’s Reserve”
Pinot Noir – Sonoma Coast

Happy Holidays Wine Lovers!

It’s that time of the year when wine is needed for every occasion – gifting, holiday parties, dinners, and endless celebrations. But how do you choose?

Every Sonoma Pinot Noir has their claim to fame, but Kastania Vineyards has two that differ from most; Rochioli clones and recognition from the White House. As in, the place where the President of the United States lives, that White House. In 2000, their wines were hand selected by President Bill Clinton to be served at White House dinners. So while we think these wines are fit for a King, we know they’re fit for a President – and your holiday season!

The Winemakers
From the first harvest in 1997, The Smith’s dream was to produce the highest quality wines from their grapes. Their dream has became a reality. Today, Linda and Hoot Smith, their sons, daughters-in-law and even their grandchildren all play an active role in Kastania’s current and future production of fine wines alongside winemaker Leslie Cisneros.

The Wines
Kastania Vineyards makes their wines in small lots from their premium Estate grown grapes. Their Burgundy and Bordeaux varieties are influenced by the vineyard’s distinct terrior and the maritime impact. Their passion is to produce high quality wines. We invite you to enjoy the special occasions in your life with a bottle of their exclusive handcrafted wine!

Kastania 2012 “Proprietor’s Reserve” Pinot Noir – Sonoma Coast
