Fiddlehead Cellars
Lompoc, CA, United States

Kathy Joseph established Fiddlehead Cellars to capture the pure essence of the two grape varieties that she loves best - Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir. Fiddlehead's Sauvignon Blanc wines hail from the eastern end of the Santa Ynez Valley in Happy Canyon, while her estate Pinot Noirs showcase the cooler Santa Rita Hills in the western-most part of the transverse valley of Santa Barbara AVA. As one with a passion for the nuances of place, Kathy also crafts Pinot Noir from Oregon's Willamette Valley.

Fiddlehead produces approximately 5,000 cases of wine each year at "FiddleHeadquarters", their winery in the Lompoc Wine Ghetto. Once bottled, most of the wines age at least another year in their temperature controlled facility so that the diverse components of the wine are married and integrated, yet still layered with a pleasing complexity.

Fiddlehead was created around the cool climate appellations proven to be great for Pinot Noir – the North Willamette Valley and the Sta. Rita Hills. Regardless of location, the vineyards are always:

-> Place specific for the variety
-> Sustainably farmed
-> Hand-nurtured
-> Night-harvested
-> Field-sorted

According to 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. We demand the highest quality fruit, which only comes from a commitment to modest yields and diligent farming.'
