...WELCOME TO THE KINGDOM OF KAZ...
With its traditionally 80 percent–accurate weather forecasts,The Old Farmer’s Almanac predicts that this winter will be another arctic blast with above-normal snowfall throughout much of the nation. The extreme weather will continue into Summer 2015, which is expected to be predominantly hot and dry.

Winter time always works a different mussel in a winemakers body. The ants and gophers hate this time of year. So this also might answer your questions, "are grape vines hearty?"
We're a Real Family Owned and Run Establishment
The Kaz family grows some of the grapes and makes the wine, designs all of the labels, and mans the tasting room much of the time. Thus, we are truly selling ourselves encapsulated in bottles - our humor, style, eco friendly beliefs and the love that binds us.
We started our Sonoma Valley Winery with 400 cases in 1994, got up to 2,000 cases in 2005, 2006 & 2007, but the economy has eased us back down to a comfortable 1,000 cases a year. You think we have a small selection? Think again. We only average two barrels per wine which means we've got more options than most wineries our size. We also source fruit from Lake County. No distribution for us guys, we make very small batches to support any distribution.
We specialize in Complex Reds, Bold Blends, Rare Varietals (Barbera, Lenoir, Petit Verdot, Petit Sirah, etc,) and Ports like you’ve never seen (red, white and blush!). On top of all of this we do a few other things that set us apart like adding low or no sulfites to our wines, farming organically and using wild yeast when we can. Kaz says: "I don't like to add noth-en, no how, no way!"
Organic Grape Growing
Biodynamic Grape Growing
Biodynamics is a science of life-forces, a recognition of the basic principles at work in nature, and an approach to agriculture which takes these principles into account to bring about balance and healing. Biodynamics is an ongoing path of knowledge rather than an assemblage of methods and techniques.
