Kieran Robinson is a small
producer of Rhone style wines in Sonoma --and his stuff rocks. A
Philadelphia native, after working in the Northern Rhône he moved
to Napa & worked for cult wineries going it alone. A great
story from a truly talented winemaker!
Here are the show
- Kieran tells us about his early
life in Philadelphia, at Ithaca college, and getting his start in
wineries in the Finger Lakes.
- He takes us on his journey from
Northern Rhône to Napa to Sonoma and details what it was like to
work with everyone from Michel Rolland, Aaron Potts, and Paul Hobbs
before going out on his own.
- We address Kieran's real
passion: making Viognier and Syrah. We talk about the current
situation in Sonoma with grapes and more people looking at Rhône
varietals as a viable and awesome option.
- Kieran takes us through the
differences between his wines, the wines' nod to Philly, and why
they are so darn great!
