J Rochioli Winery Russian River Valley
The Rochioli family have been grape growers for far longer than they have been wine producers. They do however produce some of the best Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from the Russian River, along with impressive Sauvignon Blanc. A Pinot Noir rosé is also made and Estate Syrah and Valdigué are also now available.
A sparkling Blanc de Noir is also made. As well as the estate Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, there are a number of single-vineyard bottlings of each produced in very small quantities, almost invariably rating ★★★★ or more. (DM)
