Kathy Joseph established Fiddlehead Cellars in 1989 to capture the pure essence of two distinguished grape varietals – Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir. Her quest was simple. Besides a lesser important desire to satisfy her own palate, her intent was to incorporate European beauty into these domestically grown varietals by working with grapes grown in the right place and wines managed with respect in the cellar. Both varietals are celebrated for their successful old world pedigree; both have the potential to convey sensory elegance; both have proven to gratify a broad range of discriminating palates.
The Fiddlehead portfolio embodies Kathy’s passion to make wines of texture, elegance and expression of place. Her Estate Vineyard, Fiddlestix, is a gorgeous piece of Pinot noir paradise and her Sauvignon blancs are equally expressive of their place. As “Head Fiddle”, she cares about the people she works with, she cares about the sustainability of her actions in the vineyard and she cares about the people who drink her wine. Come visit our cozy getaway that offers the perfect experience for every palate!
