Venge Vineyards opens their new location

Venge Vineyards Venge Vineyards returns at their new location in Calistoga! After the original location in St Helena, the historic Rossini Ranch property was sold last May, Kirk Venge owner/winemaker took the opportunity to go it alone with the Venge label. Kirk purchased the 12.6 acre Berlin Ranch in North Calistoga and recently opened his offices there. Kirk is the son of legendary winemaker Nils Venge who now owns Saddleback Cellars located in Oakville. Nils has a long history working for some of the top wineries in the valley. In 1985 while a minority partner in Groth Vineyard Nils received the first 100 point perfect score from wine critic Robert Parker. His 1985 Groth Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon earned Nils the title “The King of Cabernet”. Nils left Groth in 1993 to focus his attention on Saddleback Cellars and consult for other wineries. Kirk joined Saddleback in 1999 after returning from working the harvest in New Zealand and was charged with overseeing the resurrection of the Rossini Ranch property and start up of the new Venge Winery. Kirk’s strong foundation, skill and talent as a well regarded winemaker will continue the success of the Venge label. The new location is just minutes from Calistoga on the historic and picturesque Silverado Trail in a region known for its natural beauty and legendary wineries.
