Quivira Vineyards is a leading producer of Zinfandel, Sauvignon Blanc and Rhône varieties, built upon intentional winegrowing and a thoughtful commitment to organic farming. Quivira was founded in 1981 by Holly and Henry Wendt, who were drawn to Dry Creek Valley’s unspoiled rural character and rich history of winegrape growing that is among the longest in California. In 2006, Pete and Terri Kight purchased Quivira from the Wendts.
Since 1998, Quivira has been actively engaged in restoring Wine Creek, the Coho salmon and Steelhead trout spawning stream that winds through the center of the estate. The iconic 140-year-old Fig Tree has been preserved as a landmark.
Quivira’s estate includes a lush organically farmed garden designed to educate visitors and promote biodiversity. The garden’s 100+ raised beds are planted to exceptional heritage cultivars of various produce. Quivira partners with highly-regarded restaurants and hosts farm-to-table dinners that feature fresh produce, estate products and wine all from the property.
