With three generations of dedication to the land, Rochioli Vineyards and Winery has earned the reputation as one of Sonoma County's finest wineries. This family legacy began in 1938, when Joe Rochioli Sr. purchased land he had long farmed. He had the foresight to know that the soil of the Russian River Valley would one day produce some of the world's greatest wines. His son Joe Jr. embraced this vision and today craft renowned, terrior-driven wines built on a foundation of superb fruit. The result has been a decades-long tradition of outstanding vintages: Silky-smooth, fruit-forward Pinot Noirs; rich, opulent Chardonnays; and tangy, food-friendly Sauvignon Blancs. Always in demand, always revered and always rated among the best varietals to be sought anywhere in the world. This commitment to quality is unwavering and our promise to everyone who uncorks a bottle of our wine. Read less

Tastes on berries and earth. Lot's going on for a young vine wine. A total value for a Rochioli pinot.

Truly a lovely wine. Dark cherry, spice, hint of acid. Smooth.

There are 250 cases of the dark ruby-colored, more elegant, restrained, mineral-dominated 2005 Pinot Noir East Block. Produced from a cooler exposition, it reveals sweet raspberry and black cherry fruit, a crushed rock character, full body, and beautiful length as well as depth. Like most of these single vineyard offerings, it should drink well for a decade or more. Kudos to Tom Rochioli, one of the wine world s great guys who, without any fanfare, continues to turn out world-class wines of extraordinary aromatic and flavor dimensions.

One of the most stupendous Russian River Pinots I have ever tasted, there are just over 400 cases of this amazing wine. A ruby/purple color is accompanied by an extraordinary nose of forest floor, spring flowers, blackberries, and sweet cherries. A steely structure gives way to a wine of superb depth, richness, dimensions, length, and purity. There are 400 cases of this astounding effort, which was aged in 75% new French oak. Kudos to Tom Rochioli, one of the wine world s great guys who, without any fanfare, continues to turn out world-class wines of extraordinary aromatic and flavor dimensions.
