About our Russian River Valley wines
by Michelle Anna Jordon (our local journalistic expert).
Here is the history, the economics, health of the vines, and help to plan your visits to wineries.

"the history of grape farming extends back to the Russian period. Grapes were planted here as early as 1836, when Yehor Chernykh, a Russian immigrant, planted 2000 vines over a three-year period at Chernykh Ranch, which old maps indicate was located near where Green Valley and Graton Roads intersect today."
