Owners and Winemakers
Kieran Robinson’s story, winemaker and co-owner of R Five Wines, started in the finger lakes of Upstate New York while attending Ithaca College. Working at small production wineries that specialized in Alsacienne white, Kieran realized his passion for wine. Upon returning to his roots after college at Ithaca, Kieran had the opportunity to experience the challenges of making wine in a nontraditional wine region–the Philadelphia countryside.
With a thirst for knowledge and strong fervor for winemaking, Kieran moved, with Kristie, to the Northern Rhone region of France. Working for Domaine Pierre Gaillard gave Kieran the appreciation for the deep-rooted French viticulture and winemaking philosophies. After work was finished in Cote Rotie, Kieran and wife/co-owner Kristie decided to move to Napa Valley to expand their winemaking knowledge. After his tenure at Cakebread Cellars, he moved to Sonoma to work under the tutelage of Paul Hobbs. Refining his skills at Jericho Canyon Vineyard with famed winemakers Aaron Pott and Michel Rolland, Kieran launched Kieran Robinson Wines with the 2009 harvest, focusing on Rhone varietals.
