ABOUT

Owner and Viticulturist Edward (Eddy) Kronfli completed his Masters Degree in Viticulture and Enology at UC Davis before setting out to work and study in vineyards across the world. Back home in California, he has worked in some of the finest vineyards in both Napa and Paso Robles where he collaborated with winemakers to develop and cultivate ultra-premium winegrapes sustainably and consistently. Detail oriented and data driven, Edward always emphasizes that he is a scientist first, farmer second and aims to take the guesswork out of viticulture. Originally starting out with aspirations of being a winemaker, Edward quickly realized that the best way to make a great wine is to start in the vineyard so he traded in his barrels for a tractor.  He states "At the end of the day, it's all about the wine, everything we do, everything we sacrifice, is to help create that magic moment when you taste a wine that is truly incredible. Thats why we work so hard."

 

Outside of the vineyard, Edward tends to a flock of sheep that occasionally make appearances in the vineyards, but insists  that his most important flock are the vineyards of the Central Coast
