Since childhood, I have always had a strong connection with Sonoma County. I was raised in Santa Rosa, CA, where I attended high school and developed meaningful relationships with members of the wine growing community. After graduating from Santa Clara University, I delved into the world of finance to pursue my Wall Street career. While trading stocks was exciting and challenging, I had a lingering sense of my roots in wine country. I left a successful trading career and moved back to Sonoma where - after learning every aspect of the business at a well-renowned, family-owned winery (VJB Vineyards & Cellars) in Kenwood, CA - I was inspired to start my own label. After nearly twelve years, I made the decision to pursue the passion which was slowly consuming my life - wine!
As a small-production winery I have made a conscious effort to source the best possible fruit available from superior appellations in Sonoma County. Combined with a barrel program consisting of mainly new French Oak, I believe you will find a memorable wine experience in each and every bottle. I am proud of Keating Wines, and I hope you will sense this as you enjoy it with family and friends.
