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.
