OUR STORY

Kokomo Winery is perched on the East side of Dry Creek

Valley amidst the 120 acres of prime benchland vineyards

of Timber Crest Farms.  Owner and Winemaker Erik Miller

started the winery in 2004 naming it after his hometown

of Kokomo, IN, and decided on a Coastal Cypress Tree

as a logo to signify his move out west. Kokomo currently

produces over a dozen different varietals and several

single vineyard designates which are farmed by his partner

in the winery, grower Randy Peters.  Kokomo Winery

focuses their terroir-driven wines on the three distinctive

appellations of Sonoma County - Russian River, Dry Creek 

and Alexander Valleys. This dynamic partnership of a

grower and a winemaker ensures the winery’s ongoing

commitment to quality and consistency for future vintages. 

Kokomo Winery has been making its mark in Sonoma

County, unfailingly earning 90+ ratings, Best of Class,

and Gold Medals across all of their varietals since the

beginning.

Kokomo Winery takes pride in being a family winery

and the minute you walk into their tasting room it’s

very apparent.  The Kokomo team have created a place

for visitors to enjoy a comfortable and laid back wine

tasting experience immersed in their cellar and

surrounded by wine barrels.  Erik’s taken his Hoosier

hospitality and infused into his friendly tasting room

team at Kokomo. You’ll always be greeted with a

warm welcoming smile and an unassuming approach

to wine tasting. The tasting room is open seven days

a week and you can taste their current lineup of wines

at the counter or make an appointment for a Reserve

Tasting in their Barrel Room.

2018 Chardonnay, Peters Vineyard Russian River

Valley Varietal: 100% Chardonnay

Appellation: Russian River Valley

Harvest: September 2018

Fermentation: Barrel fermented

Barrel Aging: 11 months in 100% French Oak,

30% New Alcohol: 13.9%

Vineyard Description: Planted in West Sebastopol,

this is a premier location for Chardonnay. The

vineyard is next to Luther Burbank’s Farm and

the soil composition is rich Goldridge Sandy Loam.

With the consistent coastal fog extending hang time

well into October, this fruit is fully developed and

loaded with complexity. The Chardonnay is

comprised of Clones 4 and 76.

Winemaker Notes: Reminiscent of a classic

white Burgundy but with a California twist,

this Chardonnay displays flavors of ripen pineapple

and vibrant minerality accompanied by

mouthwatering natural acidity typically found in

Peters Vineyard. This Chardonnay is elegant

enough to pair with delicate foods and delicious

enough to drink by itself after a long day.
