History

Rodney Strong Vineyards is dedicated to crafting world-class wines that capture the essence of Sonoma County. Rodney Strong sustainably farms 14 estate vineyards and produces wines from Sonoma County's finest appellations - Alexander Valley, Russian River Valley, Chalk Hill, Dry Creek Valley, Knights Valley, Petaluma Gap, and Sonoma Coast. We aspire to conserve and protect the environment in all winery operations through sustainable practices, solar power and fish friendly farming.

The Vineyards

The end result of our winemaker's passion for blending flavorful, deeply nuanced and unique wines. Exclusively from vineyards in Sonoma County, predominantly Alexander Valley and Knights Valley, our Red Blend offers a sumptuous, almost magical outcome of the growing season and winemaking process.

Early winter showers were followed by a warm, dry beginning to a new growing season, setting the stage for an early bud break. Alternating overcast days and heat waves continued through spring and summer, with a particularly hot period in late June, and an unseasonal rain in July. Harvest came in record early fashion; the grapes were picked between August 24th and October 7th.
