Overview
More
After a two-decade quest to find the finest Napa Valley winegrowing terroir, founder of Capcom video gaming, Kenzo Tsujimoto, acquired 3,800 acres of an untamed mountain valley on the flanks of Mt. George in Napa’s southeast corner. He then created Kenzo Estate, a vast expanse of wilderness, five times the size of New York’s Central Park. Protected within Kenzo Estate’s preserve are rain and spring-fed reservoirs, vernal pools, streams, and diverse forests of conifer, oak and manzanita where wild boar, coyotes, mountain lions, deer, turkeys and bobcats linger in the wilderness and are occasionally observed by guests and those tending to the estate. Only the best 4% of Kenzo Estate’s vast acreage has been planted to vines by famed Viticulturist, David Abreu. Each autumn, the grape crop is delivered to the meticulously appointed winery, where celebrated Winemaker Heidi Barrett crafts wines of intensity, focus and finesse.

This should be on your radar. Wines are unusual and all have a story. Plan to spend time learning and growing.

It's a shame that this front for a winery is dripping in excessive attention. Yes, wonderful caves, yes eye pleasing tasting room. But the wine is sub par. Heavy extracted, unbalanced oaking. Confused finish. More attention is need to detail on making Wines of substance...More

After 6 days in Napa valley, numerous wine tours and tastings, our time at Kenzo Estate stands as the single greatest experience we had. We had meals at Meadowood, Farmstead, Auberge du Soleil and others, but none of those experiences compared to Kenzo. From the...More
