NAPA VALLEY/ SONOMA COUNTY, USA
In 2008, Kale and his wife Ranko set out to create Rhône inspired wines from extraordinary vineyards in Northern California under their own label, Kale Wines. Specializing in small production, handcrafted wines, Kale utilizes new technologies as well as ancient techniques to express the unique vineyards' most delicious characteristics.
Throughout Kale's winemaking journey, he has developed a set of guiding principles that reflect his deep respect for the art and science of winemaking. He believes in using his senses to craft wines and relies on science to minimize risk. For him, the key to success lies in understanding and utilizing tools gently and respectfully.
“Make the wine the most beautiful expression of itself, then blend to harmonize the characters into something more interesting than its parts.”- Kale Anderson
