After leaving a career in consulting in his early twenties, Founder and Winemaker Jordan Kivelstadt traveled the world making wine in California, Australia, Chile, and Argentina. In 2007, Jordan made 125 cases of Estate Syrah. He drew inspiration both from his winemaking experiences in the new world and his family’s passion for European cuisine, art, and wine culture. Jordan has focused on exploring the product of incredible California vineyards, with a nod toward the rich history and balance of the old world wines. Production has grown to 3,500 cases annually and the Kivelstadt Cellars wines are featured on wine lists at some of the best restaurants in the country.
