124 Signature Wines and Wineries of Coastal California Known primarily for its Cabernet Sauvignon and Petite Sirah, the Vina Robles all-estate lineup includes small lots of a wide range of varieties and creative blends. While adhering to traditional winemaking methods, veteran winemaker Kevin Willenborg also implements modern technologies to make his estate wines with minimal intervention. Built in 2018, the state-of-the-art Vina Robles winery houses many innovative tools that support Willenborg's vision. A few examples include an optical sorter, barrel rooms with separate climate controls, and an integrated pump-over on-demand system. Willenborg came to Vina Robles in 2012. Versatile and detail- oriented, he brings more than 30 years of winemaking experience, covering many of the industry's key regions including Bordeaux, Napa, Sonoma, British Columbia's Okanagan Valley, as well as California's Central Coast. His team approach and passion for "winegrowing" allows him to craft elegant wines that are truly expressive of the Vina Robles estate vineyards.
