Noble Estates features the renown Russian River winery.
Sonoma-Cutrer has been producing quality wines since it opened as a vineyard company in 1973. The Russian River region experiences long, even growing seasons thanks to the cool, foggy coastal climate. In the 70’s, the company planted several different grape varieties and virtually overnight Sonoma-Cutrer’s Chardonnay grapes had gained a reputation for exceptional quality and were in high demand by many premium wineries.
Sonoma-Cutrer is dedicated to the pursuit of original expression in the wines. Each wine reflects its regional and seasonal climate, its specific vineyard character – its terroir. They have adapted the Grand Cru method of winemaking. Carefully selected French oak barrels and fermentation at controlled temperatures are just two examples.
Today, Sonoma-Cutrer’s flagship wine, Russian River Ranches, is the most requested Chardonnay in North America’s finest restaurants.
