Seghesio Family Vineyards Fiano Russian River Valley 2009
Fiano, revered by the ancient Romans, was called “apiano” for its allure to bees (“apis” in Latin) as harvest approached. Our fascination began when a friend offered it at a blind tasting. Soon, we became Sonoma’s first growers of this intriguing grape. With origins from the marine-influenced southern Italian town of Avellino, Fiano excels on our family’s similarly cool Russian River Valley ranch.
