Russian River Valley AVA

Wine grapes were first raised here in the early 19th century by Russian settlers. Their efforts produced a pioneering Graton vineyard planted to more than 2,000 vines by 1836—two years before George Yount’s first plantings in Napa Valley. Today, the Russian River Valley is home to some of the world’s most revered Pinot Noirs.

A cool Pacific climate, coastal fog that lingers in the valley year round, sun-warmed slopes, Goldridge sandy loam—this favorable combination creates ideal conditions for cultivating Russian River Pinot Noir. EnRoute is proud to belong to this celebrated appellation.
