A mosaic of growers, vintners, artists, & farmers


Press Impressions

“The size of the Russian River Valley AVA is so big that it is failing consumers…give us some meaningful geographic delimitations. You are now all grown up, and it won’t hurt a bit”

-Charles Olken

“…Middle Reach, Laguna Hills, Santa Rosa Plain, Western Russian River….such distinctions make sense”

-Steve Heimoff

“..smaller areas within the Russian River Valley AVA possess even more precise and consistent climatic and geologic characteristics that are in fact quite different from other areas inside the larger Russian River Valley AVA.”

-Tom Wark
