Kongsgaard

 

John Kongsgaard approached us about representing his famous brand in 2015, and we were completely flattered that he approached us first.  He has created one of the finest wineries in America, and we are proud to represent him in our markets.

 

John and Maggy Kongsgaard began the winery in the 1970s when the Judge vineyard was planted on family land near Napa.  The first wines were released in 1996.  Although Chardonnay is still the backbone of the winery‚Äôs production, several other bottlings are made in small quantities.  What they would tell you about making high-quality wine seems so simple on the face of it:  low yields, low-intervention winemaking in an effort to combine power with finesse, and hopefully allow the wine to express the vineyard.  Since the beginning, the wines have received widely acclamation from the wine writing world.
