Sonoma Valley

Our Story

We welcome you for an exclusive journey of our premium, small lot wines made locally in our town of Sonoma. Creating intense and expressive Pinot Noir and Chardonnay farmed from exceptional vineyards, each wine is carefully crafted to capture the vintage while paying respect to their provenance. Working in collaboration with revered growers, our sites throughout Northern California reach from the far edges of our Pacific coastline, to our majestic Redwood valleys, into fog laden bays of our wind swept Carneros.  Come experience our wines outside on our beautiful patio under the old growth olive trees or under our covered historic barn, we look forward to sharing our wines with you.

Meet the Winemaker

KENNETH JUHASZ My father arrived in the United States as a refugee from the Hungarian revolution. His story of survival and freedom resonated with me early to break free from traditional thinking to live purposefully. Working my way through college in wine shops and restaurants combined with some soul-searching along the way, the discovery of Pinot Noir offered me infinite possibilities. It kept me grounded to enjoy the physical work of farming, it allowed me to push the boundaries of traditional winemaking, and it fed my constant need for discovery. My pathway to Pinot began with exploring subterranean Burgundy, working harvests in Willamette Valley, Napa and New Zealand, consulting for some of the best California producers, then ultimately starting Auteur with Laura. My goal is simple, to make the best f*cking Pinot in California.
