CHRISTO and JEAN-CLAUDE-THE RUNNING FENCE
Years before Michael Karah owned the property, the famous environmental artists, Christo and Jean Claude constructed the now famous piece of environmental art, "Running Fence," which was 24.5 miles of fence constructed of white nylon that ran from where Karah Estate now stands into the Pacific Ocean at Bodega Bay. The project took four years (1972-1976) to complete and was disassembled after fourteen days.
WINEMAKER, REID KINNETT
Reid found his love for wine during his first career as a server and bartender in Southern California. His fascination with both the hedonistic and academic nature of wine led him to San Luis Obispo, where he earned a degree in Wine and Viticulture from Cal Poly. Since, he has completed harvests in Argentina at Viña Cobos, as well as Flowers and Marcassin here in Sonoma County. At Karah, Reid now oversees the cellar and farming operations for our 35-acre estate. He aims to make low-intervention, polished, and delicious wines that showcase the climate and terrain of this extraordinary site.
