Uniquely tied to the exciting world of professional sports car racing and garnering wins from racing around a track at 180 miles per hour at the highest levels of professional competition takes extreme focus, attention, and a drive for perfection. To professional race car driver and team owner, Kevin Buckler so does winemaking.
Following the legendary success of his professional race team, The Racers Group (TRG), Kevin and his wife Debra opened Adobe Road Winery in the heart of Sonoma County in 2002. Their goal, to craft wines that exemplify the true essence of California's most revered wine-growing regions. “We work hard to make sure each bottle of Adobe Road wine showcases the best attributes of each vineyard, within each appellation we source from,” says Kevin. “We choose the best parts of Sonoma and Napa Valley for our elite Cabernet Sauvignons, Dry Creek for our hedonistically rich Syrahs and Zinfandels, the Russian River as well as the Petaluma Gap for our ethereal Pinot Noirs and lavishly flavored yet sleek Chardonnays.”
In 2016 Kevin and Debra once again did what was necessary to support their fast-growing winery. They purchased a warehouse property on the riverfront of beautiful, historic Downtown Petaluma, a booming, character-rich wine country town. The new facility that will start construction in the summer of 2018 will house the winery and tasting room and a car museum, catering facilities, dining rooms, and visitor center. Support and excitement around the new facility erupted when announced in late 2016 and is guaranteed to become the new destination winery to those living in and visiting wine country.
Adobe Road is a boutique winery producing artisan wines including Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Grenache, Malbec, Merlot, Mourvedre, Petite Sirah, Pinot Noir, Rose, Sauvignon Blanc, Sparkling Wine, Syrah, Viognier, and Zinfandel from premium vineyards in both Sonoma and Napa. We maintain collaborative relationships with our growers and carefully select vineyard sites based on their suitability for particular varietals. Our wines are handcrafted in small lots with minimal intervention, including fermentation with native yeasts. We believe that these methods, combined with the distinctive nature of our vineyards, lead to expressive wines of the absolute highest quality.
