Our winemaking philosophy at Keller Estate is simple: "respect our vineyards' terroir."
Keller Estate is located at the heart of the Petaluma Gap which is nestled within the Sonoma Coast. As a true estate winery, all of the wines produced are from fruit grown exclusively on the property. The diversity of our wines comes from years of vineyard exploration, a careful understanding of the grapes, and unique attention to respecting the essence of the fruit.
The state-of-the-art winery at Keller Estate was designed with gravity flow features that allow us to be gentle with the wine. Two tanks on hydraulic lifts raise and lower as needed to drain tanks and fill barrels. Our bottling tanks are located on an elevated tank pad which allows us to fill barrels without pumping the wine.
Yet with all the technology available today, we’ve learned that the most important rule, and sometimes the most difficult one, is to simply do nothing but respect the fruit, the vineyard, and the wines themselves.
