In 2017, ample winter rainfall provided much needed relief in the Russian River Valley. Consistently sunny days throughout the spring and summer with heat spikes in September resulted in an early harvest. With harvest finishing in early fall, we were unaffected by the October wildfires and the fruit came in with exceptional quality
The Trenton Road Vineyard is situated in the center of the acclaimed Russian River Valley AVA of Sonoma County. With 48 acres planted to vine, it is surrounded by beautiful redwood groves, sloping hillsides, and the nearby Russian River. Known for its cool, foggy climate that sweeps in from the Pacific Ocean and alluvial soils, it is an idyllic site for growing Pinot Noir.
