It is simple and straightforward for Kathy. When it comes to wine, a few things matter most. It has to taste good. It has to give rewards. And it has to be fun.
She cares about the people she works with, she cares about the sustainability of her actions in the vineyard and she cares about the people who drink her wine.
Fiddlehead is a happy family of hard workers who like to have a good time, love the challenge of making great wine and thrive on sharing the pride of our handcrafted approach. Our greatest joy is when you share your appreciation of our efforts.
We nurture the vines, we invest in the highest quality barrels and equipment and we don’t release our wines until they taste absolutely delicious, often with several years of bottle age.
Our purpose is not to make big, extreme wines. Our purpose is to make wines that are most pleasurable to the palate, surrounded by seduction and enticing deliciousness, whereby the wines become the experience themselves.
What we do
Fiddlehead wines are place driven, vintage driven, textural and most satisfying. They are made from exquisitely farmed vineyards, planted to marry climate and place with varietal; they are hand harvested and field sorted in small sections and made with the utmost respect for traditional methods. Each vintage is crafted to highlight the greatest potential of each place, discriminating and selecting only the best.
The entire brand is designed to create focused wines of luscious texture, true to the varietal and devoted to sustainable farming and non-invasive winemaking.
Sauvignon Blanc from our warmer climate and Pinot Noir from our cool climates become perfect textural partners in our limited portfolio of wines. “More mature”, “more textural”, and “more stylish” define our more European focus in winemaking. And Kathy's passion is clearly realized in every sip!
