The Santa Nella Ranch is located at the western edge of the Russian River Valley Appellation. Here the proximity to the coast makes for a very cool climate that is moderated by the vineyard’s southeastern facing slope. The vineyard was first established in the 1880s and produced one of the first Russian River Pinot Noirs in 1957.
