The Kivelstadt Cellars Tasting and Tap Room is all about challenging convention. From unique varietals, undiscovered gems of vineyards, and uncommon winemaking techniques, to wines on tap, our eco-friendly refillable wine growlers, and a friendly and unpretentious atmosphere, we strive to expand the possibilities of what a California winery can be. Specializing in small-lot Rhone varietals made in the old world palate, Kivelstadt Cellars is the passion project of Jordan Kivelstadt. 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 making high-quality one-of-a-kind wines at Kivelstadt Cellars vintage after vintage. If you’re searching for something truly innovative in the wine world, If you want to take a step out of the mainstream, then join us and be part of the future of California winemaking. Kivelstadt Cellars Tasting & Taproom focuses on engaging customers with wine in new ways. We're changing the traditional tasting room experience in every way; from our winemaking style and varieties, to our packaging and on premise consumption. We serve wine for tastings straight out of kegs which eliminates packaging waste and wine spoilage. We offer wine to go in both traditional bottles under a cork or in reusable packaging (growlers), which offers both a monetary discount on wine to consumers and another way to eliminate packaging waste. Our tasting room is open to the public Thursday through Monday from 12 to 5 p.m. Flights are $15-20 and include mixed, red wine only and white wine only options (depending upon availability of wines).
