Knights Bridge Winery
Situated at the foot of Mount St. Helena, just north of Calistoga in a narrow valley that bridges two of California's most prominent and respected winegrowing regions – Napa and Sonoma – you’ll find the breathtaking Knights Bridge Winery. The winery was founded in 2006 by several close-knit family members, who discovered 50 acres of hillside vineyards in Knights Valley, the perfect spot to produce exceptional Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon.
The Knights Valley Appellation is known for its warm days and cool nights, and is the warmest viticultural region in the county. Combined with mineral-rich volcanic rhyolitic (volcanic) soils, this region produces world class Chardonnay and Bordeaux varieties; wines that consistently earn acclaim from critics and wine lovers alike.
This special place continues to enshrine the rough beauty and ambition of the West, but contains within it a classic finesse and style that makes this one of the most unique wine-growing regions in the world.
Knights Bridge Winery's estate vineyard is nestled on the pristine west side of Knights Valley, the warmest appellation in Sonoma County. It was here that the family decided to create Knights Bridge Winery with the singular goal of producing world-class wines. Joining on their quest is a group of talented professionals, all striving together in the pursuit of excellence from sustainable farming methods and small lot wine production to unique tasting experiences. Knights Bridge Winery is guided by a deep respect for nature, a passion for fine wines, and a dedication to family and friends.
