Our Roussanne comes from Bonofiglio Vineyard, owned by Glenn McGourty and his two brothers. This seven-acre, organically farmed vineyard is located five miles north of the town of Hopland along the banks of the upper Russian River. Its location provides ideal conditions for growing white Rhone varietals that need a long growing season to fully develop flavors and aromas while still retaining natural acidity.
