About the Appellation

Russian River AVA
If there was only one word you could use to describe the key influence on the regional growing conditions it would certainly be “fog.” The vines soak up the afternoon sun, which brings the grapes along, gradually, toward maturity. They spend their mornings and evenings under a cool veil of coastal fog, which rolls in from the Pacific ocean, just a few miles away. The persistent daily fog keeps the natural acidity bright and extends the growing season, often by as much as 15 -20% over neighboring regions, giving the grapes the all-important hang-time they need to develop peak flavor maturity.
