Walt and Katherine Schlotfeldt made the move to California dreaming about wine. Soon enough their dream became a reality when they invested in their very own vineyard, a lush 42-acre hillside property with 14 acres of cabernet sauvignon vines. With minimal viticulture experience, they sought guidance from friends in the wine industry, and in due time they saw bud break! For Walt and Katherine, Denali Estate is their labor of love, as they collaborate with winemaker Jean Hoefliger to produce premier Napa Valley wine.
