The Winery


Layers of rich, textured fruit build to the intense, breathtaking finish. This remarkably vivid, pedigreed Pinot Noir simply has it all. What a wine.
–Antonio Galloni

Founder and winemaker of the esteemed Chardonnay-producing Kistler Vineyards, Steve Kistler, launched a Pinot Noir label called Occidental in 2011. The wines are produced from fruit coming from three different vineyards in the Freestone-Occidental AVA in Sonoma: Bodega Headlands, SWK Vineyard, and Occidental Station. Because of their proximity to the Sonoma Coast, there are extremely low corp levels in these vineyards, and the wine produced maintains its acidity as well as balance and richness from the native yeast fermentation practice and small usage of new oak treatment. Occidental wines are a true testament to Steve Kistler’s passion and continue to show expressions of fruit that is true to the site.
