Kistler is a single clone Chardonnay house... One heritage Californian selection of Chardonnay planted across
fifteen vineyards, from Carneros to Sonoma Valley, to the Russian River
Valley and Sonoma Coast. From those sites we produce eleven vineyard
designate Chardonnays. We are wholly dedicated to the ideal of wines of
site. It’s an unparalleled approach in the new world.
... we also make a little bit of Pinot Noir. Two heritage selections of Pinot Noir inform all of our Pinot Noirs. Originally hailing from a Grand Cru vineyard in Burgundy, we’ve been propagating these two selections for the last twenty-five years. They, like our Chardonnay clone are very low yielding, resulting in wines with a natural density and concentration of flavor, balanced by elegant natural acids and elevated aromatics.
