KENNY KAHN AND BLUE ROCK VINEYARDS BIO:
Dating back to 1880, the 100-acre Blue Rock estate tells the story of how European winemaking came to Sonoma County’s Alexander Valley. Italian immigrants brought with them olive trees, vine cuttings, and knowledge of grape growing. The region’s undulating golden hills and idyllic vistas even look reminiscent of Tuscany itself.
Blue Rock Winery was first settled by Italians who worked at the Italian-Swiss Colony winery just down the road. The original stone house was once Villa Maria winery, which closed its doors during the Prohibition Era. Acquired by Kenny and Cheryl Kahn in 1987, the Estate maintains much of its old world character. It even maintains its original olive trees that are now over 140 years old.
“In the United States, especially in California, there is so little remaining
of our past. Everything is a modern version of things that existed
before, but Blue Rock Winery is the real thing. We preserved the Estate’s old-
world style because it is a gift to our culture where so little history
remains.” – Kenny Kahn
Adding onto the property, Cheryl and Kenny imported additional olive tree cuttings from Luca, Italy
where some of the world’s best oil is produced. You’ll also discover organic vegetable gardens, a
130-year-old bocce ball court, and surrounding hillsides that offer incredible vistas. The hills are
also inhabited by wild turkeys, feral pigs, and abundant wildlife.
