Mitchell Katz Winery is an innovative Livermore Valley winery dedicated exclusively to producing single-vineyard wines that capture the essence of each vineyard. 


Mitchell Katz has built an impressive portfolio of vineyards that allows selection of the fruit which best exemplifies true varietal character of premium wines.  So critical is the quality of the grape to the character of the wine that winemaker, Mitchell Katz, monitors the vineyards as well as the cellar. 


Mitch ensures that only the finest, most intensely flavored grapes are used for Mitchell Katz’ single vineyard wines.  His diligent winemaking approach begins in the vineyard where all grapes are hand-harvested. Through his careful selection of grapes, and use of barrels for both fermentation and aging, Mitch has developed wines that are both an expression of ideal vineyard conditions and thoughtful winemaking. The results are wines of extraordinary flavor, richness and intensity.

    What a wonderful surprise from Livermore. Uncorking the wine filled my nose with smells of ripe berries and wet clay. In the glass the wine is a very inky dark purple. Swirling and sniffing revealed gobs of dark fruit with hints of bell pepper and green olives. The wine felt silky in mouth and tasted heavily extracted with gobs of blackberry, bl... Read More
