Any Pinot Noir Lovers Out There?
Kathy Joseph established Fiddlehead Cellars in 1989 to capture the pure essence of two distinguished grape varietals – Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir. Her intent was to incorporate European beauty by working with grapes grown in the right place and wines managed with respect in the cellar.
She was one of the first to plant grapes in Santa Barbara County.
Today, Kathy is recognized as a pioneer among women winemakers. She inspired the director of “Sideways” enough to highlight her wine in the movie. The Happy Canyon Sauvignon Blanc was also a favorite among the crew.
At Fiddlehead, Kathy annually produces only 5,000 cases of wine, with personal interest in each grape cluster, each barrel of wine and every bottle that finds its way to your table.
