Russian River Valley

Russian River Valley

The volcanic and alluvial soils of the Russian River Valley have produced California’s most exotic and opulent Pinot Noir and Chardonnay for decades, due primarily to the cooling influence of coastal fog that flows in like a tide in the evening and early morning. This cold, moist air regulates the hot summer days, extends the growing season, and preserves essential acidity in the grapes throughout the year. Small, hand-tended vineyards tucked alongside the hillside ridges in protected pockets can ripen leisurely, allowing development of the sumptuous fruit and lush velvet texture that have become Russian River’s hallmark. For co-founder Peggy Furth, these luxurious wines represent the ultimate in good living.
