We are a family-owned and operated California winery, located in beautiful Sonoma County. The Kobler family have been wine growers for over two generations, and we honor our grandparents’ legacy by continuing the tradition of growing and producing fine, small-production wines.
We specialize in Rhône and Burgundy varietals, including Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Syrah, Grenache, and Viognier. We craft appellation and single-vineyard wines in a style that focuses on delicate flavors with vivid, yet balanced, notes of fruit and spice.
In the mid 1990′s the Kobler’s bought a five-acre apple farm in the lower Russian River Valley. Mike and his brother could see the region known as “Green Valley” was perfect to grow cold-climate Syrah, and so they did. The Syrah grown in this region creates a unique flavor profile and the ability to produce 90+ point wines.
In 2000, the Kobler’s began selling their fruit to Pax Winery. The winemaker had a passion for Rhône wines and the Kobler grapes proved to be a perfect fit. In 2003, Pax scored a 95 for his Kobler Family Vineyards Pax Syrah. To this day the grapes continue to be sold to wineries looking for an ultra-premium, artisan grown, cold-climate Syrah.
In 2010, the Kobler’s started Kobler Estate Winery, allowing them to share their passion with the public. The wines showcase a love of the vineyard and a desire to create handcrafted wines.
