Kistler Vineyards is a small, family established and privately owned and operated winery dedicated to the vinification of world class Chardonnay and Pinot Noir using old world Burgundian techniques applied to our new world vineyards.
We have consistently bottled some of the finest new world examples of these two varietals for over 30 years.
Kistler Vineyards was founded in 1978 by Steve Kistler and the Kistler family. The first vintage in 1979 produce 3,500 cases of wine and since then the winery has slowly grown to the planned production level of about 35,000 cases per year.
If the Kistler Winery could be magically transported to the middle of Burgundy's Cote d'Or, it would quickly gain a reputation as glorious as any producer of Burgundy grand crus.
