About This Wine:
And true to the Sonoma County spirit, it’s also where the leaders of the premium wine boom — many of whom now are household names — were not wealthy businessmen, but inspired farmers… newspapermen… a dancer… even a pilot.
The Russian River Valley earned American Viticultural Area status in 1983, and now comprises 15,000 vineyard acres. During the growing season, warm daytime temperatures plummet when fog regularly intrudes from the Petaluma Gap to the south, and the Russian River to the west. The northern border marks the point where the fog frequently sticks around a while longer in the morning.
Today, Willowbrook Cellars is among the most trusted labels in the Russian River Valley, and its Pinot Noir, crafted from grapes grown in its estate vineyard along the winding Burnside Road, is a delicious example of a cool-climate wine.
