The Russian River Valley produced yet another spectacular vintage in 2016. With Sonoma County still in dire drought, which had plagued the past years, moderate rainfall in January and March led to higher crop yields than 2015. The focal point of the 2016 Harvest was a short cool spell in mid-September, allowing some of the grapes grown for this wine to remain on the vine for an additional week, providing extra development of crucial flavors.
About the Winery
The Pellegrini family name has been associated with every tier of the wine business since the early part of the 20th Century, as producers, grape sellers, importers, and wholesale distributors. Family owned for four generations, Pellegrini wines are today made at our state-of-the-art Tuscan styled winery at Olivet Lane Estate, located in the heart of the Russian River Valley.
Olivet Lane is known as one of the very first vineyards that was planted to Pinot Noir in Sonoma County. The Pellegrinis employ old-world artisan winemaking methods to craft the very best Pinot Noir and Chardonnay in Sonoma County. Quality & unadorned terroir is of our utmost priority in every bottle. In 2017, Robert Pellegrini passed the reigns to his Daughter, Alexia, whom oversees and guides business operations, continuing to build upon the legacy of the Pellegrini name within the wine business.
