MEET THE TEAM

Our ownership team consists of a Certified Sommelier, Keith, and two enthusiastic wine lovers, Kelly and Blair. We felt the importance of blending an industry expert’s opinion and palate with those who love wine easier to achieve our goal of making incredible wine that is approachable for all walks of life. In short, we are just a group of friends from Kansas City who have a passion for incredible wine that we want to share with world.

Winemaker

Chris christensen

Chris, an Iowa native, not only fit into our midwestern roots, but his passion for wine as well as his incredible winemaking skills. His passion for aromatic wines and winemaking led him to create America’s first Sauvignon Blanc with bubbles for his own wine brand, Bodkin Wines. In addition to his Sparkling Sauvignon Blanc, Chris makes Zinfandel, Petite Sirah, Sauvignon Blanc and more wines across Lake, Sonoma and Mendocino counties. 

Chris was recently a recipient of Wine Enthusiast’s 40 Under 40 as well!  

Kaycee Mac would not be what it is without Chris’ expertise and ‘badass-ery’.
