The softly undulating hills of the famed Russian River Valley, caressed by cool blankets of fog and anchored by volcanic soils, are home to some of the world’s finest vineyards, which consistently produce outstanding, distinctive and highly praised wines. In the heart of this renowned wine growing region is the picturesque and historic Russian River Vineyards, one of the valley’s oldest and most storied wineries. Ever mindful of its treasured past, new owners Chris O’Neill, Barbara Sattler, Giovanni Balistreri, Anthony Austin, and Debra Del Fiorentino are meticulously renovating the estate, with the goal of transforming it into a modern-day archetype of an organic, sustainable and “green” winery. We welcome you to join us on our journey! Our tasting room is open daily from 11 am to 5 pm. Enjoy our fine wines and stay for dinner at our new restaurant, Corks at Russian River Vineyards. We are Wine Country at its finest — an incomparable experience. – Description from milana

  • EMark, Ah Topolos, the best outdoor dining experience in all of Sonoma County. The Topolos Family retired and it turned into Russian River Vineyards. For a short while a local restaurant named Stella's Cafe moved in there but a dispute between the restaurant and the property owner ended that marriage. Since that time the name has been Cork's Res... Read More

  • Thought I'd start a topic to see what "different" wines people are drinking. I've been on a hunt to find wines made from lesser known grapes or from unusual areas. Here's one of each.This is a rose made from Cinsault, not too unusual right? Well this is from the Bekaa Valley in Lebanon. Either they don't make very good wine in Lebanon or this bo... Read More

    Precise on the nose with smoky, grilled meat aromas that are deep with a rustic, savory edge, featuring lovely herbal, sage elements and notes of American oak. This smells like zin.

  • Have you tasted, or sipped, a wine and felt that the world does not need such a wine?Well I did! I fully respect that RESTINA is a Greek treasure; I cannot cope with it, though I have tried.Some say that it is an acquired taste; perhaps so.This is a Greek white wine to which pine resin is added.The history behind the inclusion of pine resin is m...

  • During the Rose virtual tasting, some folks started talking about the various ways to make rose.  (Bleed off wine early from red maceration, shorten contact between skins and wine, mix red and white, which is banned some places).  But someone said that all grapes have white flesh.  Almost perfectly true, but there is a very small group of grapes...

  • Bella Vineyards & Wine Caves Zinfandel Russian River Valley 2007

    Snoothrank:

    Really disappointing in light of the vintage and this normally excellent winery. Dull and underendowed Zinfandel that is bettered by many if not most Zins in this price range. Claret-like structure with straightforward, slightly herbal berry and currant fruit. Not much zip in the aromas, flavors or finish. Certainly OK wine, just not at this pri... Read More
