Mendocino Greatness in the Making - Getting to Know Knez!
"Single vineyard wines crafted by the alchemy of ocean, fog, soil and patience." - Knez Winery
Peter Knez may have only seen 3 vintages of his wines to date, but they've left a permanent mark on Anderson Valley winemaking. Winemaker Anthony Filiberti (of Anthill Farms) crafts utterly beautiful Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from several vineyards, which only seem to get better with every passing vintage. Farmed organically while employing sustainable and biodynamic vineyard management & winemaking, these wines are proof that dedication and undivided attention from vine to bottle produces some of the best wines in the world.
Great wineries tend to start small, and we believe Knez is destined for greatness. With a level of quality that rivals Premier Cru Burgundy (but for half the price!), we were lucky to secure even a tiny allocation of this wine.
"... it certainly appears Knez is one of the most exciting new entrants on the Sonoma Coast. It will be interesting to see where things go in the coming years, especially as Knez's Estate vineyard in Anderson Valley comes online with the 2012 harvest." Antonio Galloni, Wine Advocate #206, April 2013.
Lock in now and enjoy the wines from a winery destined for greatness...you'll be glad you got to know Knez!
All My Best
