Russian River Valley

Both elegant and exotic, with more Old World-like aromas of roses, wood spice, tobacco leaf, milk chocolate, roast almond and toffee. On the palate, this wine is soft and refined, with abundant savory and spice notes, supple tannins and a dry, crisp, cigar-box finish.

Lee and George Martinelli

Burnside Vineyard

Since 1887, the Martinelli family has earned respect and acclaim for their commitment and expertise growing premium grapes in the Russian River Valley, and more recently on the Sonoma Coast. Today, the Martinelli vineyards are managed by viticulturists Lee and George Martinelli, who continue building on the family’s legacy of excellence, with their meticulous approach to vineyard care.

The Martinelli family immigrated from Italy to Sonoma seven generations ago and began planting vineyards and producing wine. We are fortunate to work with two vineyards from these viticultural masters, Pinot Noir from Burnside Vineyard and Chardonnay from Zio Tony Ranch, both marvels of meticulous farming and dedication to excellence. Both sites are located in some of the coldest areas of the Russian River Valley and consistently produce profound wines of structure, elegance and age-ability.
