A brief history
Poppy & Rose Wine Company was founded in 2021 by Winemaker Kelly Koch. Kelly is a native of St. Helena, California, but has been living and making wine on the North Fork of Long Island since 2006. Poppy & Rose is a tribute to these shared roots - the Poppy is the state flower of California and the Rose the state flower of New York. The wines are an expression of her passion for science, nature, and joy.
