Koehler Winery is situated on a 100 acre estate that is planted with 67 acres of Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Sangiovese, Grenache, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling, and Viognier. In addition to this estate fruit, the winery also sources grapes for several other wines.

Kory Koehler purchased the vineyards in 1997, and soon began constructing her winery and tasting room. The previous owners had sold all of the grapes to other local producers. Koehler immediately hired esteemed vineyard manager, Felipe Hernandez, to care for the vines.

Chris Stanton has been the winemaker at Koehler Winery since 2005. He has a degree in Viticulture and Enology from UC Davis, and previously worked for Meridian in Paso Robles, St Clement in St Helena, Guenoc Winery in Lake County, and Mayo Family Winery in Sonoma.

Stanton produces a wide selection of wines, but Cabernet Sauvignon is his flagship. He also makes an excellent Pinot Noir with grapes from the Santa Rita Hills, and a blend of Sangiovese, Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon called “Magia Nera.”

Just visited again today (went for the first time in 2003). Pretty reasonable prices, and with very limited distribution each one you take home should be saved for a special occassion. The 2003 Pinot was our last favorite, but the 2005 Syrah and the 2005 Santa Rita Hills Pinot were favorites today. The tasting room has been refurbished as well. This was the first winery specific club that I have joined...too many gold medals and 90+ point wines to pass it up.
