Sibling Rivalry Pinot Noir, 2017

Produced by Kivelstadt Cellars

We love old world wine, so only the coolest region in Sonoma would do. While planting the vineyard in 1997 the Kivelstadt’s decided to plant multiple Pinot Noir clones on multiple rootstocks.

Almost Sold Out

2015 was another very hot vintage with little rain. The combination of a mild winter and a cool spring caused relatively early bud break. 2015 was a high quality but very low yield year resulting in a small production of only 75 cases.
