Winemaker Rob Fischer cut his teeth at Domaine Carneros then Donum estate, Etude, Lyric and Beaulieu Vineyards. Along with owner Baron Ziegler they have such a strong network of relationships in Sonoma County that back in 2014 when they were offered a parcel of grapes that weren’t going in to production, Valravn was born. Today Valravn has spread its wings finding a vineyard parcel here and a row there to craft quintessential Sonoma County wines that are out of the gate approachable, delicious and table ready. Grapes are hand-harvested from select vineyards - roughly one third each Sonoma Coast, Russian River, and Carneros AVAs. The Sonoma Coast portion is cut selections from our Marine Layer designated wines, including Bohemian, Heintz, Gaps Crown and Marine Layer Estate vineyards. The Russian River component is based on Old Wente clone vines planted on Goldridge soils. Rounding out the blend is a cool (for the AVA) Carneros site with gravelly soils and a direct maritime influence from the San Francisco Bay.
