About

A small group of friends making unique wines from small vineyards in Sonoma, Valravn continues to seek out opportunities for making great wine, finding a parcel here and a row there and then bring it all together to craft quintessential Sonoma County wines – ones that are out of the gate approachable, delicious, and table ready. The grapes for this wine were sourced from the Alexander Valley, Moon Mountain (up in the Sonoma Valley), and Russian River Valley. A combination of aspects and soil types (Goldridge, Sebastopol series, alluvial) allowed for them to blend the components for a seamless composition. In the cellar, hand sorting of grapes that then undergo an extended pre-fermentation cold-soak followed by primary fermentation in stainless steel. Following primary, the wine was transferred into mostly Saury and François Freres barrels (50% new) for aging for 16 months.
