AROMATIC. BALANCED. PURE.
OUR WINE MAKING PROCESS
At Kitzke Family Vineyards our goal is to express Candy Mountain to its fullest potential. This means working overtime in our vineyards without herbicides to produce meticulous fruit and maintain a low impact. In the cellar we pride ourselves in transparency, letting native yeasts from the vineyard do the fermenting and showcase true terroir without manipulation.
We do not use proteins, tannin additives, or color concentrates in the production of our wines.
