The Russian River Valley is a large and diverse growing region. With many different neighborhoods, the same grape will show itself in different ways. Our Russian River Chardonnay is sourced from different vineyard sites throughout the Russian River Valley.
The unique terroir of the Russian River Valley can best be expressed by using a variety of vineyard sites. When we blend these sources, we create a wine with an indisputable sense of place and a definitive character.
Vineyards in the Sebastopol Hills give us intense flavor, stone fruits and bright acidity. In the warm Middle Reach, chardonnay shows tropical fruit and body. The Santa Rosa plain chardonnays give us citrus fruits and minerality. By blending fruit from all of these vineyards together we create a balanced full bodied chardonnay which shows the character of the whole Russian River Valley.
