Wine region

Russian River, United States

The Russian River Valley is an American Viticultural Area (AVA) located in Sonoma County, California. This appellation extends along the Russian River basin, encompassing the areas around the cities of Sebastopol, Santa Rosa, Forestville, and Healdsburg.

Viticulture in this AVA has a relatively long history: it was initiated during the 19th century by immigrant communities, which relocated to California mostly from Southern Europe – the majority were of Italian descent. It was only with the turn of the 20th century that viticulture and winemaking became commercial phenomena, with almost 200 wineries operating in the area.

After the dark ages of Prohibition, with its “Jackass brandy” and illegal wine production, we have seen a resurgence of winemaking starting from the early 1970s. It was Foppiano Vineyards in 1973 to label a wine Russian River for the very first time. The Russian River Valley was recognized as its own AVA in 1983.
