While three legends in the world of wine - Fred Dame, Steven Spurrier and Jancis Robinson - meet in Paris to drink the rarest bottles of their careers, seven of the best blind tasters in the world gather in New York to settle an age-old argument in wine - can the world's finest Pinot Noirs stand up to the great Burgundies of France?

More about Ken Freeman...

Ken fell under the thrall of wine’s mystery while growing up in Scarsdale, New York, amidst a wine loving family. He recalls venturing to Zachy’s with his mom and being fascinated by the wooden crates bearing the imprimaturs of Château Margaux and Domaine Romanée-Conti stacked high on the sidewalk in front of the store. Little did he know that one day his own Freeman wines would claim a coveted space on Zachy’s shelves.

In 1985, Ken met Akiko. After discovering a shared passion for a more sophisticated and eloquent style of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, they began preparing to found their own winery. After earning his M.B.A. from Kellogg, Ken worked for years establishing the Discovery Channel in Asia, which took him and Akiko to Singapore and Hong Kong. Whenever possible, the Freeman’s traveled to the world’s great winegrowing regions, including trips to many of the great wineries of France. In 1997, Ken took a position at CNET in California, and the Freeman’s winemaking dream began to crystallize into a plan to make cool-climate Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. They began searching for grower partners and vineyard properties in the coolest parts of the Russian River Valley and on the extreme Sonoma Coast. In 2001, Ken and Akiko acquired a small winery in the Russian River Valley town of Sebastopol where they established Freeman Vineyard & Winery. In 2005 they acquired an adjacent property, now the site of their Gloria Estate Vineyard; and in 2007 they purchased the Freeman Ranch further west in the Sonoma Coast appellation, where they planted their second vineyard, named ‘Yu-ki’.

In addition to being a skilled businessman, as Freeman’s proprietor Ken has become a jack-of-all-trades, working closely with Freeman’s portfolio of respected vineyard partners, rolling up his sleeves to help with the winemaking, and adding his palate to the blending team. As the proprietor of Freeman, Ken is one of six founding members of the West Sonoma Coast Vintners, and is on the board of the Sonoma Land Trust.

Freeman Wine Dinner at Gemma Restaurant in Dallas

Location: Gemma Restaurant
2323 N Henderson Ave, Ste 109, Dallas, TX 75206

Join Winemaker-Owner Akiko Freeman and her husband Ken as they proudly to pair their Sonoma Coast Pinot Noirs and Chardonnay with the delicious cuisine at Gemma Restaurant for a wine dinner on April 16, 2018.

Allison Yoder and Stephen Rogers recently moved from California to Dallas (Rogers grew up in Dallas). In California they both worked at one of Napa Valley’s top dining destinations, PRESS. Rogers was executive chef. Yoder was general manager. Customers lauded the food and service. San Francisco’s esteemed food critic Michael Bauer gave the restaurant three out of four stars – twice – and called it “…the perfect marriage between food and wine.” For an encore, she and Rogers decided it was time to go solo, and open their own restaurant. In Latin, gemma means the bud of a plant; in Italian, “the precious one.” At Gemma, Yoder runs the front of the house, while Rogers runs the kitchen as executive chef.
“It’s our first restaurant, and we want it to be a little gem,” Yoder says.

Freeman Wine Dinner at Caracol in Houston

Location: Caracol
2200 Post Oak Blvd, Ste 160, Houston, TX 77056

Freeman Winery is pleased to pair our West Sonoma Coast wines with Chef Hugo's Coastal Mexican cuisine at Caracol for this special dinner on March 27th. Caracol serves an abundance of fish and seafood, the city's best wood-grilled oysters and other Mexican favorites in a bright, art-filled setting. Please join us!

"The beauty and complexity of Burgundian grapes is undeniable. These great French Pinots and Chardonnays have created ardent wine lovers the world over. They’ve also inspired others to try their hand at creating a bit of that magic. Such was the case for Freeman Winery owners Ken and Akiko Freeman, who founded their sublime winery in 2001 in the cool climates of California’s Russian River. Since that time they’ve explored and played with the possibilities of these iconic grapes on their own estate as well as with fruit from the greatest vineyards up and down the Sonoma Coast. Their focus is always on a more eloquent style of winemaking. This is born out of a pursuit of places where the vines are challenged with low yields and fruit is ripened gently and slowly. They’ve succeeded marvelously over the last 17 years, becoming one of the most well-regarded boutique wineries. We are thrilled to have Ken Freeman to lead us through these wines and share his and Akiko’s passion. Join us for a fun night of Chef Hugo’s cuisine and the wines of Freeman Vineyards on Tuesday, March 27. "
