“The Sauvignon Blanc was pretty. This one is a little more funky. More time on the skins. More time in barrel. This wine will have you feeling like you just put Diana Ross’s Diana on your stereo.” – Alisa Koehnen, Winemaker

Koehnen Wine Company was founded by John and Alisa Koehnen. John worked for Revel for years which is how he was introduced to Kenny from Hobo Wine Co and created the relationship for this project. Kenny does the production while John writes the album so to speak.The labels are photos that John took. This label is a photo of Alisa taking a photo of John.
The vineyard is managed by father daughter pair Bernie and Pilar. Bernie has been growing grapes in Lake County for 50 years since arriving from Chile. All grapes were hand picked and brought to Santa Rosa the morning of September 14th. 100% destemmed. Fermentation occurred on skins for 11 days and then finished in neutral barrel with full mL. The wine remained in neutral barrel for 6 months. All native yeast. Unfiltered and unfined. A small amount of SO2 was used.
John has a 10+ year old dog he named Josko after Josko Gravner. The pioneer behind the orange wine movement. He’s been into skin contact wines long before they became fashionable.
