Kimberly Pfendler - Pfendler Vineyards
This Sunday Kimberly Pfendler will be pouring at the Pinot Days Southern California in Santa Monica. If you are attending, we hope to introduce you to the wines of Pfendler Vineyards. Pfendler was launched in 2007 with the goal of making elegant wines with a sense of place from Kimberly's family vineyards located on Sonoma Mountain in the exciting emerging Petaluma Gap region. Pfendler's winemaker Greg Bjornstad brings a strong vineyard-focused approach to his work and does a wonderful job in reflecting the region's unique terroir in our wines. Pfendler Vineyards was founded by Kimberly Pfendler in 2007 with the goal of producing world-class, elegant Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from her family's mountain property in the Petaluma Gap region of the Sonoma Coast AVA. Kimberly's late husband Peter Pfendler planted the family's first vineyard in 1992 to Bordeaux varietals. Although the grapes struggled to ripen, he was inspired by the Petaluma Grape's potential to produce world-class wine, and over the next 15 years, he experimented in planting various Pinot Noir and Chardonnay clones which thrived in the cool-climate, maritime-influenced region.
