ABOUT THE VINEYARD
Farming and winemaking are in the blood of Owner and Winemaker, Kirk Venge. Born and raised in Rutherford, Napa Valley, surrounded by fabled vineyards and wineries, Kirk Venge was instilled with his father's vision of excellence. He learned the rhythm of winemaking as a young man, helping in the family vineyard throughout the growing season.

In 1999 Kirk Co-founded Venge Vineyards, producing Scout's Honor, Silencieux, Bone Ash Vineyard and now 20 years later he is producing wine not only for his own winery and projects but also for some of the top vineyards and estates in California. Kirk now represents fifteen wine brands with names as prestigious as Hunnicut, Eleven Eleven, Macauley, Mirror and Baccio Divino
