Arturo and Deborah Keller first fell in love in the early eighties with the site while driving a vintage car through the meandering Sonoma roads and selected the property for its potential as a site for a world-class vineyard.Our founder's focus was to create a winery where the best wine could be made in an artistically majestic environment.
Since taking over the reins in 1998, Ana works to create wines that reflect a sense of place, while in harmony with the family's approach to elegant, age-worthy, and food-friendly wines. In 2013 Ana joined the Petaluma Gap WineGrowers Alliance's board and was instrumental in creating the Petaluma Gap American Viticultural Area (AVA) which was ultimately granted in 2018.
German-born Julien traveled the world working harvests and finally came to the U.S and paid his dues at Kosta Browne and Merry Edwards before joining Keller Estate in May 2016. Critical in Julien's career has been profound respect for the vineyard and a holistic approach to farming and winemaking, making him a perfect fit with Keller Estate's philosophy.
