Kelby James Russell Wines
Kelby James Russell Wines first began as a casual brainstorm at Red Newt Cellars, where owner and winemaker David Whiting suggested that a separate wine project might be an important creative outlet for Kelby. With a diverse selection of vineyards and wine styles, the label promises to bring something new to the wine world; ‘off-beat’ wines both in reference to their musical inspiration as well as their individual spirit.
Kelby says, “starting this label allows me to focus on a limited number of wines that I am most passionate about, inspired by the music I am passionate about. The hope for these wines is that they always have personality and speak for themselves.”
The “KJR” lineup began in 2013 with the release of the Rose and Riesling. Since then the Cabernet Franc has also been released. If you’re a fan of these wines, grab them while you can. They have a tendency to sell out quickly!
