The Pioneer of Pinot, Davis Bynum

Wednesday, March 31
4:30 PM

In 1973, when Davis Bynum first released his small lot of single vineyard Pinot Noir from the famed Rochioli vineyard in Sonoma County’s Russian River Valley, Pinot Noir was a relative stranger to the region, but the fickle grapes thrived in the unique terroir. The first to produce single vineyard Russian River Valley Pinot Noir, Davis Bynum was instrumental in bringing the prestige to Russian River Valley vineyards, still acclaimed as one of California’s finest Pinot Noir growing regions

Today, almost 50 years later, the heritage of Davis Bynum lives on through the hand-crafted creation of wines grown exclusively in Russian River Valley. Winemaker Greg Morthole continues to honor the innovative winemaking spirit of founder, friend and mentor Davis Bynum.

Join Winemaker Greg Morthole for a Virtual Tasting on March 31st at 4:30 (PDT) as we learn about the “Pinot Pioneer”, Davis Bynum and the wines that help put the Russian River Valley on the map. We’ll taste through two of our amazing Pinot Noir Clonal Selections, wines that showcase the distinctive combination of vineyard, soil, season, and clone - a unique opportunity for a truly singular experience!

Pre-buy our wines so you can taste along with Greg or visit us after the Tasting for your Clonal duo.
