Freeman Vineyard & Winery is the fruition of a 20-year dream shared by Ken and Akiko Freeman to craft elegant cool climate California Pinot Noir and Chardonnay in a sophisticated, Burgundian style. With a passion for fine wine and contemporary cooking’s wealth of exotic flavors, the Freemans strive to create wines with the depth and character to pair seamlessly with the abundance of modern, global cuisine. Believing in the vast potential of the Sonoma Coast to produce wines of complexity and refinement, after years of searching for the ideal site, the Freemans discovered a beautiful small winery in the picturesque Russian River Valley town of Sebastopol. Guided by the old winemaking adage that "wine is made in the vineyard,” the Freemans researched and visited over 200 individual vineyards, searching for hillside locations with coastal fog, Goldridge soil, proper clonal selection and stressed vines producing extremely low yields of nuanced fruit. The end result was Freeman Vineyard & Winery’s small portfolio of partner vineyards, including such renowned growers as Ted Klopp of Klopp Ranch, Marcy Keefer of Keefer Ranch, Charlie Heintz of Heintz Ranch and Dennis and Mary Black of Black Emerald Vineyard. – Description from dvoristanac
