Meet the team at Russian River Royale. 


The Alchemy of Russian River Royale started on a trip to Sonoma Country by a group of east coast wine loving friends, looking for great Pinot Noir, using old world Burgundian wine making techniques, but incorporating and embracing all that is the sunshine and terroir of California.

Their shared passion and appreciation for the art of making wine, the importance of terroir and growing premium grapes is the genesis of Russian River Royale Pinot Noir and soon to come Chardonnay.
