Ed Kurtzman

Winemaker, Mansfield-Dunne
Ed began his Pinot Noir and Chardonnay journey at Bernardus in the early 1990s. In 1995 he became the enologist and assistant winemaker at Chalone Vineyard, where he honed his craft working alongside Dick Graff and winemaker Michael Michaud. Within a few years, Ed was named the winemaker for Testarossa Vineyards, where he helped develop the winery’s Pinot Noir program.  Since 2003, Ed has been on his own as a consulting winemaker. His current main clients are Mansfield-Dunne and Freeman, while also making wine for his own label, Sandler, and his partnership label, August West.
