Our Story

Kivelstadt Cellars was founded for our love of amazing California vineyards. After leaving a career in consulting in his early twenties, Jordan Kivelstadt traveled the world making wine in California, Australia, Chile and Argentina.

In 2007, Jordan made 125 cases of Estate Syrah. He drew inspiration both from his winemaking experiences in the new world and his family’s passion for European cuisine, art and wine culture. Hence our focus became exploring the product of incredible California vineyards, with a nod toward the rich history and balance of the old world wines that came before us.

Since the inaugural 2007 vintage, our production has grown to 3,500 cases annually. We strive to create wines of intrigue that maintain a fun and approachable style and challenge the status quo of conventional California wines.


About Us


 

Jordan Kivelstadt - Wayward Son

As Founder and Head Winemaker at Kivelstadt Cellars, Jordan seeks to create wines that stand out. His passion for food and wine permeates everything he does. By day he is the Founder and CEO of Free Flow Wines, a wine on tap company focused on improving the quality and sustainability of the wine we drink in restaurants. He initially cut his teeth in wine working harvests in California, Argentina, Chile and Australia. Kivelstadt Cellars is Jordan's creative outlet and brings balance to his daily responsibilities at Free Flow. He pours all of those experiences into innovating in the wine industry and improving our wines at Kivelstadt Cellars vintage after vintage.


 

Alex Pomerantz "AP" - Consigliere

Alex joined the Kivelstadt Cellars team in 2011 after leaving behind a desk job in New York. He met Jordan and his family in a serendipitous moment while in search of a harvest internship and immediately dove into all aspects of the business. As GM and Assistant Winemaker, Alex divides his time between managing sales, vineyard sourcing, winemaking and almost everything in between. Alex' passion for natural wines, his love of the old-world and his thirst for exploring unique California vineyards makes him right at home in the Kivelstadt family.


 

Miles Burgin – Barone

After years of service in military intelligence as an Arabic linguist, Miles heard the call of the vines and returned to his native Sonoma Valley to start a career in wine. Managing all aspects of the Kivelstadt Cellars tasting room, he is enthusiastic about trying to break the mold of what a California winery can be while maintaining the small town charm and hospitality that makes his home town so great.

Steve Chamberlin - Il Capitano

Having recently concluded a 25-year career as a U.S. Coast Guard officer, Steve determined that his second act would be in pursuit of a passion.  He took a gamble and moved to Sonoma County in search of a role in the wine industry, rather than heading back to his old stomping grounds in New England. Fortuitous timing connected him with the Kivelstadt Cellars team.  Steve’s multifaceted role has him in the tasting room, planning events and assisting with operations.  Kivelstadt Cellars is committed to building a diverse and talented team of passionate people, making Steve an excellent addition.  

Nancy Kivelson & Tom Angstadt – The ‘Rents

Kivelstadt Cellars wouldn't exist were it not for the inspiration from Jordan's family's vineyard. Tom & Nancy purchased Kivelstadt Vineyard in 2005, where they created a warm retreat for friends and family to gather. They manage the 10 acres of vines at the estate vineyard, which makes up about a third of our wine production. Amongst a million other things, they are passionate grape growers, food and wine lovers and a constant presence in our lives. Visit Nancy's Cornerwhere we periodically feature recipes developed from the estate gardens by Nancy herself.
