Freeman Vineyard & Winery was founded by Ken and Akiko Freeman in 2001.|
Ken and Akiko surveyed the California Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs they respected most. They soon came to realize that nearly all of their favorites hailed from the same small spot on the map-the far Sonoma Coast and the adjoining Russian River Valley. Here, climate and geography force wine grapes to struggle in order to achieve ripeness, building complexity and character in the process. Steep, rugged hills bathe in crisp ocean air, and valleys lie hidden beneath cool layers of fog. These hills, Ken and Akiko decided, would make the perfect home for their winery.
From the first vintage, the Freeman style went against convention. While others pushed the limits of ripeness, Akiko and celebrated consulting winemaker Ed Kurtzman sought balance and refinement. Today, whether they are working with legendary growers like Keefer and Heintz, or with Freemans own sustainably farmed estate vineyards, Akiko and Ken strive for a virtuous and authentic relationship with nature.
The Freemans will lead us through the wines alongside a special menu crafted by Chefs Mark Sullivan and Steven Pelas. In addition, guests of the dinner will have the opportunity to purchase wine at retail pricing.
