About This Winery
Old-fashioned hospitality and good Rhone-style wines make for great company at this funky little spot on the northeastern fringes of the Russian River Appellation.
The shingled, redwood barn-like winery is a classic old family-run operation sitting on a hill surrounded by their Petite Sirah estate vineyards. The small cozy tasting room is a throwback from the large destination wineries. The homey, rustic tasting space has low wooden-beamed ceilings, a tile floor and a small inlaid-tile tasting counter. The seasoned staff works to find the right wine for your taste, and is a fountain of information.
In addition to Rhone-style wines, the winery produces Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel, Petite Sirah, Chardonnay and richly flavored port. Their small vineyard is planted to Syrah, Petite Sirah and Cabernet. All the fruit comes from either the Russian River Valley or the Dry Creek Valley.
The red wines are made using small, open-top tanks, with the wine being “punched down” twice a day for up to two weeks during fermentation. French and American oak barrels are used for aging. The goal is to produce intense, perfectly balanced wines that are approachable, with medium tannins and the aging potential of three or four years.↑ Less
