Friedeman Wines

Our Vineyards

We have long term grape purchase and lease agreements with multiple ultra-premium vineyards, and work with only two vineyard managers, the Ulises Valdez family and Dutton Ranch, ensuring consistency and control over viticulture. Additionally, our first estate planting was completed in June 2015: a high-density (meter by meter) planting of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay on the western edge of the Russian River Valley, near Freestone.
