About This Winery
Located in the heart of Sonoma County's Russian River Valley, we handcraft ultra-premium Pinot Noir and Chardonnay wines.
Located in the heart of Russian River Valley, Lynmar Estate is a preeminent producer of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay wines. Resident proprietors Lynn and Anisya Fritz are intimately woven into daily operations, sharing overarching values of sustainability, world-class winemaking, locally sourced food, and community. Always more than the sum of its parts, Lynmar Estate is comprised of four touchstone vineyard parcels in Russian River Valley, beginning with Quail Hill Vineyard established by the family in 1980.
Stewards of the Land
A place of abundant natural beauty, Lynmar Estate borders the western edge of the Laguna de Santa Rosa, the largest tributary of the Russian River, and Sonoma County’s richest wildlife preserve. Situated just 12 miles from the Pacific Ocean, Lynmar Estate benefits from the influences of a maritime climate. The ebb and flow of warm days and cool evenings create an ideal climate for cultivating Chardonnay and Pinot Noir.
Stewardship and Sustainability, core values at Lynmar, are evident everywhere you look. Along with our grapes, our flowers, herbs, orchards, and farm gardens are carefully tended by hand and provide precious habitat for bees and other beneficial insects, butterflies and birds. Carbon negative, we are powered by the sun, practice regenerative agriculture and invest in our employees, neighbors and the community.

A third-generation farmer from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Pete Soergel grew up tending to apple orchards and working in all aspects of his family's farm business. After earning a degree in horticulture from Virginia Tech, he took his green thumb and strong work ethic to California wine country for his first harvest. California's scenic beauty and outdoor lifestyle easily worked their magic on Pete, and his interest in wine gained with speed.
"Working with an agricultural product never ceases to amaze me. The detail that goes into pulling the extraordinary from soil and vine, and coaxing that terroir into a bottle, is a truly unique and special process."
Following a harvest internship in New Zealand, Pete returned to California and spent several years at Kosta Browne and Landmark Vineyards before joining Lynmar Estate in 2012, where he was promoted to winemaker in 2017. Pete now spends his days on one of the most pristine vineyard properties in the Russian River Valley. Working with an ideal combination of world-class vineyards and modern production facilities, he crafts award-winning wines that honor the terroir, nuance and beauty of Lynmar Estate.
