Knez Winery

I am excited to introduce the Knez Winery: An awesome new Pinot Noir producer. A new winery, but not that new…

Knez VineyardPeter Knez is a longtime friend and client of Golden Gate Wine Cellars.  Peter purchased two very much sought after vineyards Cerise (Chronicle/Littorai, Anthill Farms,  William Selyem, etc.) and Demuth (DK, Anthill Farms, etc.) in the Anderson Valley; and also hired Anthill Farms winemaker Anthony Filiberti to be the captain of his ship and produce world class wines at palatable price points!  Being a banker and holder of PhD in economics; he knows what he is talking about

The rest is history!  Anthony is a great winemaker and both vineyards are stunning. Remember that  the wine is made in the vineyards! The entire property is organically and biodynamically grown as well.  But the wine!… Tell us about the wine!

The Knez 2009 Anderson Valley Pinot Noir (Cerise/Demuth) is intensely aromatic and flavorful, sexy body, great legs … sorry getting carried away here as I enjoyed these wines with my wife and … yes I am still talking about Knez Pinot Noir.  The wine is well-balanced from nose to finish.   The wine has a great color and aroma, followed by hints of sweet strawberries and hint earthy spice.  This wine is a blend of the Cerise and Demuth vineyards. A very small production at an even better price! Retail 35.00 – GGWC 29.99

Knez also produces a small amount of a stunning 100% “Demuth” 2009 Chardonnay (Retail 40.00 – GGWC 35.99) which reveals amazing aromas of quince, white peaches and nectarines coalesced with hints of minerality and a touch green apple spice, crisp acidity and a full-body loaded with fresh, lively fruit and a long finish.

Later in the summer two designated vineyards from this estate will be released as well.
