OUR VINEYARD

Terroir

Several dozen blocks constitute nearly 100 vineyard acres on Kenzo Estate, leaving the vast majority of the land untouched. Protected by a perimeter of peaks, the vineyards are situated at 1,500' elevation where summertime temperatures are suppressed by the marine fog pulled in to the valley from the bay. Harvesting later than vineyards up-valley where temperatures are often 10 degrees hotter, Kenzo Estate wines are defined by the refined cool-climate character of the grapes.
