Winemaker's Notes

Kazmer & Blaise Cellar is the partnership of vineyard owner Peter K. Molnar and winemaker Michael B. Terrien. We produce only a small amount of Pinot Noir from the seven acre Primo's Hill Vineyard planted by the Molnar family in the early Seventies. At twenty-seven years old, Primo's Hill is a mature vineyard with a legacy of delicious wines.

Our winemaking approach is informed by Burgundian tradition but tailored to the unique fruit of our vineyard and to the Carneros climate. Farming and winemaking in California have evolved to accommodate the generous growing conditions. Where Californian winemaking previously emulated the techniques that suited the cooler climate of Burgundy, we recently have redefined tradition. Both in the vineyard and cellar our approach acknowledges and embraces the differences between the old and the new worlds.

Kazmer & Blaise Primo's Hill Pinot noir distinguishes itself within the Carneros appellation. A gravelly vineyard makes for better drainage and reduces soil compaction to allow deeper root penetration. With its roots seeking nutrients and water below the clay layer, the vine expresses its circumstance with unique flavors.
