All KAYA wines are currently made exclusively from estate grown grapes produced from the winery property. Our family believes very strongly that wine is made in the vineyard. These selections represent specific field selections grown to fulfill their particular niche and style. While the cellar practices are meticulous and detail-oriented, the emphasis is on gentle handling and minimal intervention. The real differences are derived from how the wine grapes are cultivated in the field. It is no coincidence that a visit to the winery spectacularly showcases the exceptional terrain and beauty of its mountain vineyards, both in its rolling vistas and in the way the vines intimately envelope the winery.
