Simplicity. Quality. Craftsmanship
Ken sold both companies and moved full time to Sonoma, acquiring the 11-acre Hydeout Sonocaia farm. He returned to building vineyards, farming grapes, and making wine for Sonoma-based client land owners under the Hydeout Sonoma name (see image bottom, 19 vineyards under management). After ten years, this company was also sold.
Ken has since built and opened a new winery at the Hydeout farm, called Sonocaia.The family has painstakingly developed the farm, first cleaning the site of debris, eradicating invasive weeds, and adding the vineyard and winery, followed by chickens, bees, olives, raised beds, solar power, all while working to recover and secure the open grassland and creeks from over-use. Ken’s full-time occupation remains managing the ranch, growing grapes, and making the Sonocaia estate reserve Sagrantino.
