Korbin Kameron, Moonridge Vineyard is a family endeavor. On a drive through the Sonoma Valley, we - Jenny and myself along with our children Kristin, Korbin and Kameron - came upon a homestead hovering high above the valley floor, so high that the land lived above the clouds. The house looked over acres and acres of rolling hills, wild with nature. And in that idyllic scene, we saw our dream of working together and creating quality wines from our estate grown grapes coming to life.
After many years of planning, turning, planting and nurturing the land, we reaped our first harvest and Moonridge Vineyard was born. Our wine brand, Korbin Kameron, is named after my two twins. The vineyard, located on a 186 acre property on Mount Veeder, embodies the best trait of each member of my family: know-how, determination, creativity, vision, compassion and exuberance. Though we are new to the enterprise of winemaking, we have relied upon their acumen and experience in business and fashion to craft quality Bordeaux varietal wines and create lasting family memories.
One of our greatest strengths is to find the expertise and experience of others like a great vineyard manager, Phil Coturri, as well as an experienced veteran winemaker, Timothy Milos, and craft it so that it fits our vision of quality. Most importantly, we learn and grow together.

Korbin Kameron Vineyards is owned by the Ming Family, of Hong Kong and Chinese descent. It is one of but a couple of wineries owned by Chinese-Americans. The account of how this emerging winery came into existence is a wonderful story that bears telling.
