Cultivating Excellence from Vine to Wine


The Kesselring genes are deeply rooted in farming – it runs in our blood and family lineage. Kesselring Vineyard Consulting and Services (KVCS) was born from this love of the land and that’s what drives our passion for wine viticulture.

We thrive on getting our hands in the dirt and nurturing the soil to grow grapes that produce phenomenal wines. Our hands-on approach to vineyard development and management means our clients get the highest quality of vineyard care – from planting to pruning to picking.

Our owner, Bill Kesselring, provides recommendations at every stage of vineyard ownership from evaluating the viticultural potential of a property to nurturing the land to achieve the highest caliber vines and wines.

From vine to wine, perfection personified

A lot of things must go right to produce a perfect bottle of wine. Every vineyard has unique characteristics and Mother Nature can be unpredictable. We understand how differences in soil composition and varying climates contribute to the final product.

Our extensive knowledge of terroirs spanning the coast of California – from Napa to Baja, Mexico – helps us write the playbook for the successful development of your vineyard.

KVCS offers a variety of services, including vineyard development, vineyard management, vineyard consulting, and fertility, nutrition and pest management. No project is too big or too small. Whether you have four acres, 600 acres or 30,000 acres, we work with the land to create the best quality wines.

Our focus is to bring out the true character of each vineyard as expressed by the taste of the wine.
