Our Occidental pinot noirs are made in very small quantities and are allocated exclusively to our Mailing List members. Our 2022 Spring Release will begin in January 2022.
To receive an allocation of Occidental pinot noirs, please join our Mailing List.
In January 2022, we will begin to offer our five single-vineyard wines from the 2019 vintage - the 2019 Bodega Headlands Vineyard Cuvée Elizabeth, 2019 Running Fence Vineyard Cuvée Catherine, 2019 SWK Vineyard, 2019 Bodega Ridge Vineyard, and the 2019 Occidental Station Vineyard.
Earlier this year, our 2018 bottlings were reviewed by Antonio Galloni of Vinous and Erin Brooks of Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. Both Antonio Galloni and Erin Brooks gave perfect 100 point scores to the 2018 SWK Vineyard and 2018 Running Fence Vineyard Cuvée Catherine, respectively, while Jeb Dunnuck gave the Cuvée Catherine 99 points, noting that it may ultimately merit a perfect score once it reaches maturity. It is always gratifying to receive high marks for our wines from people we respect.
We hope you will become a member of our Mailing List and thank you for your interest in our wines.
Steve Kistler and the Kistler Family
