The Tradition: Were proud to be part of the farming tradition started by Jose Antonio Yorba, who came to California in 1769 as a member of the Portola Expedition (see a fourth grader for a California history lesson) and stayed to raise cattle and grain. The Kraemer Family continued to use Yorba as the marketing brand for our oranges since 1913, in honor of our great grandmother: Angelina Yorba.
Ken Bernards, our winemaker, has spent years honing his skills with his own label, Ancien. He has devoted most of his career to Pinot Noir, often considered the most difficult wine to make, gaining both regional and international acclaim.
Yorba is also lucky to have a seasoned vineyard manager in the family. A respected viticulturist, Ann Kraemer developed Shake Ridge Vineyard relying on her 25 years of experience in the pre mium wine industry. After earning her stripes managing vineyards for Domaine Chandon and Swan son, she eventually moved into consulting with wineries and vineyards, including Cain, Calera, Hobbs and Shafer.
