Katy Joseph “Fiddlehead Cellars”

How perfect!  It’s accessible, memorable, simply striking and embraces the association of food and wine!

Kathy Joseph (winemaker) started the winery to capture the essence of the two grapes she loves best, Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir.

All of Kathy’s wines are driven by the importance of texture, elegance and expression of place at a moment in time.  As “Head Fiddle”, she directs all of the site-specific and sustainable farming at each of her vineyards and provides the hands-on, hand-crafted care and attention to each barrel of wine (in a sort of hands-off” way) that fine wine requires.  Her commitment and enthusiasm are unmatched, and her age-worthy wines are memorable to the last drop.  She continues to believe the love of winemaking must be reflected in every sip!

Fiddlehead Cellars strives to emulate its namesake by sharing its grace and elegance, its once a year release and its admired match with great cuisine.  Great chefs around the world consider the “Fiddlehead” a prized delicacy which is often offered as a seasonal, specialty, culinary delight.  Both the wine and the vegetable are prized for their delicate flavors and captivating textures.

The result is a wine that became a celebrity in itself in the film Sideways, when a character discussed that she was drinking a ‘Fiddlehead Sauvignon Blanc’. Only 5,000 cases are produced per year, in keeping with Kathy’s philosophy of personal interest in each barrel of wine.

How perfect!  It’s accessible, memorable, simply striking and embraces the association of food and wine…not to mention that it draws on Kathy’s split personally simultaneously embracing the science and art of winemaking.

Open Fri (12-5), Sat (11-5) and Sun (12-4).
