History

Rod Strong was among the first modern wine pioneers with a vision to plant Pinot Noir in the Russian River Valley. In 1968, he planted our heritage River East Vineyard in the alluvial clay-loam soils adjacent to the winery in Healdsburg. Today the Russian River Valley is well established as one of the premier Pinot Noir growing regions in the world.

The Vineyards

The 2017 vintage will not be soon forgotten. The all-time precipitation record was set by mid-April as rain swept like waves over the North Coast, filling all of the lakes, ponds and reservoirs. As the rainclouds subsided and the sun came out, the vineyards in the Russian River Valley endured six different heat waves at or above 100F, including a memorable one on Labor Day at 110F.
