Join us on Wednesday, October 13th, in welcoming our longtime friend Ken Freeman, co-founder of Freeman Vineyard & Winery, to our wine bar, for a flight of current releases.


Ken and his wife, Akiko, are the dynamic duo behind the acclaimed Freeman Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays. Their wines have been a staple at the Ferry Plaza Wine Merchant for many years now.



Ken and Akiko met in 1985. Shortly thereafter, they went in pursuit of their dream to make wine in California that emulated the graceful and refined Burgundian Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays they enjoyed. Driven by the firm belief that California is capable of producing wines every bit as complex and compelling as those of Burgundy, they set their sights on Western Sonoma County (known for its steep hillsides and cooling ocean winds).


In 2001, after exploring over 300 sites, they discovered the perfect vineyard in one of the coolest parts of the Russian River Valley. Purchasing and renovating the old property, Freeman Vineyard & Winery was born. Tempered by morning fog and coastal breezes, the vineyard grows grapes that ripen slowly, maintain beautiful complexity and balanced acidity.


The lineup features one delicious Chardonnay and four of their trademark Pinot Noirs. Each wine has its own story and sense of place. For example, Ryo-fu is Japanese for “cool breeze,” a fitting name for this Russian River Valley Chardonnay, shaped by the chilly winds that blow in from the Pacific Ocean. Meticulous stewards of the land, the Freemans are firm believers that a wine is only as good as the vineyard it comes from, and the loving care shows in their wines.

The featured flight wines will be served as two-ounce pours and 5-ounce glasses.

The cost of the flight will be $38 per person or $34 for Wine Club Members
