PRODUCER: Kutch Wines

REGION: Sonoma Coast, California, USA

WINEMAKER: Jamie Kutch

When Jamie Kutch traded the high-octane world of Wall Street for the rolling vineyards of California in 2005, many raised an eyebrow. But skepticism turned to acclaim when his debut Pinot Noir notched an impressive 93 points in Wine Spectator. Jamie honed his skills alongside industry giants: he worked at Sonoma’s esteemed Kosta Browne and gained invaluable insights from Aubert de Villaine of Domaine de la Romanee Conti. The result? A portfolio of terroir-driven wines that have become benchmarks for quality in California.

In the Vineyard

Located in the diverse terrains of the Sonoma Coast, Jamie capitalises on unique microclimates and soil types to produce grapes that truly represent their origins. From the sandy soils of Falstaff Vineyard to the rocky terrain of McDougall, each vineyard contributes to the distinct personality of Kutch's wines. The focus here is not on mass production but on attaining the highest quality from each plot, echoing Jamie's belief in the concept of "less is more."

In the Winery

Jamie Kutch is a winemaker who asks questions and finds his answers in the bottle. Whether he’s shifting harvest dates or experimenting with stem inclusion, every decision is a calculated step towards attaining purity, structure, and, in his own words, "distinctive place." His Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays are the cumulative result of a series of thoughtful choices, grounded in science and experience. 


Grape Varieties

Chardonnay, Pinot Noir



Jamie’s unconventional approach once had him picking grapes a whole month before his peers, leading to skepticism and whispers of making sparkling wines. Despite the doubters, Jamie has now gained widespread respect for his methods and wines, even capturing attention in the ancestral home of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay—France.
