Kirchhoff Family Wines
Nestled south of Clarksburg, California, on the Sacramento River Delta, lies the Kirchhoff family estate vineyards. Here, the fertile soils and warm days of the Clarksburg Appellation provide the perfect environment for strong vine growth, while the Delta breeze cools down the vines and helps them rest at night. The result is a grape harvest that is nothing short of excellent, bursting with unique flavors and aromas that reflect the terroir of the region.
For the Kirchhoff family, growing grapes is more than an occupation – it is a passion that drives them day in and day out to produce the highest quality achievable. With a hands-on approach to grape growing, their estate vineyards are hand pruned, picked, and tended with the utmost care. The family also utilizes dry farming techniques to evoke the truest expression of their land, which they are committed to preserving for future generations by following organic and sustainable practices.
When it comes to winemaking, the Kirchhoff family takes a “hands-off” approach, allowing the natural flavors and characteristics of their grapes to shine through. There are no added sugars, acids, or tannins to the wine, and spontaneous fermentation means that no yeasts are added either. The result is a pure, natural product that the family is proud to put their name upon.
At Kirchhoff Family Wines, visitors can experience the passion and dedication of this family-owned winery firsthand. With each sip of their handcrafted wines, guests can taste the unique terroir of the Clarksburg Appellation and the love and care that goes into every step of the winemaking process.
