Bottom line: A family wine importer

Ironstone—Sierra Foothills, California

A few years ago I was invited to explore the idyllic Ironstone Winery Sierra foothills. I was blown away by the wine and history of this area! This region was designated as an AVA in 1987 but has been recognized as an important wine region since the Gold Rush – the history goes way back!

The Kautz family was there from the beginning and played an active role in building the reputation of the area. Frederick and Marie Kautz came to America from Germany in 1940; In 1968, their son John embarked on a journey that would take the family to great winemaking success – and earn an excellent reputation as a purveyor of premium grapes. After two decades of reaping land around the Sierra Foothills and Lodi, John and his wife Gail, along with their children Stephen, Kurt, Joan and Jack, built a state-of-the-art winery and entertainment facility in the town of Murphys, the heart of the gold rush era, produced its first vintage in 1989.

Today, this remarkable wine dynasty continues its tradition of producing exceptional wines that are shared on many tables worldwide. Ironstone’s location in Calaveras County offers beautiful sprawling vineyards on mineral-rich, volcanic terroir, ideal for growing a range of varietals – from Chenin Blanc to Zinfandel.

They are definitely one of the Quintessential brands that I look forward to the most and buy on a regular basis. My favorite in the lineup? The Old Vine Zin!
