Keith is undeniably California’s best sparkling winemaker. He made sparkling wines for Schramsberg earning over thirty 90+ scores from Wine Advocate and Wine Spectator.
But those 90+ scores weren’t enough, working for the most esteemed wineries can limit your creativity and Keith craved the freedom to make the wines HE wanted to make.
Thanks to Angel funding, Keith now has the complete freedom to use his creative powers, making mind-blowing wines on his own terms, exclusively for Angels.
Keith Hock's Story
We’re very very excited to announce that our Angels made a move in April to hire a sparkling winemaker from the very top of the top… the absolute cream of the crop.
Keith made what many consider to be the best Californian sparkling wine…
- Medals, scores, and prestige galore
- Over thirty 90+ scores in Wine Advocate, Wine Spectator and Wine Enthusiast
- This wine won “Best Overall Wine” and “Best Sparkling Wine” at the Sydney International Wine Competition
- It is served to anybody who is anybody:
- Served in Michelin-starred restaurants
- Served by every Presidential administration since Nixon
- Served to Queen Elizabeth
- Served in Hollywood
- Served in Space (literally! to astronauts and cosmonauts!)
- The winemaker caused a big stir in April when he announced his departure to pursue “independent projects”
- And it’s our great pleasure to reveal that our Angels were the ominous independent project all the rumors were about!
