Russian River Valley

Russian River Valley is an AVA in Sonoma County, CA, accounting for about one sixth of the acreage planted in the county. Although a couple dozen different grapes are planted here, It has earned a reputation as a source for fine California Pinot Noir, as well as for Chardonnay; additionally the two varieties are frequently found happily bubbling together in the region's good sparkling wines. Soils range from sandstones to loams to alluvial deposits, and the climate is characterized by extreme swings in temperature between daytime and night, thanks to the fogs that roll inland from the nearby Pacific Ocean.
