Kenneth Juhasz Winemaker Auteur Wines Sonoma
Winemaker | Founder

As a son of a Hungarian refugee, survival and freedom, resonated early to break free from traditional thinking. The discovery of Pinot Noir offered infinite possibilities and fed the constant need for discovery. Kenneth’s pathway to Pinot began with exploring Burgundy and Europe, working harvests, and consulting in Willamette Valley, New Zealand, Napa, and Sonoma.

His simple goal is to make the greatest, most pure Pinots in California with genuine growers and partners for all to uncover and experience.

When not crafting wines, you’ll find him sailing on the San Francisco Bay.
