Our AVA (American Viticultural Area)

Sonoma County California is internationally recognized for the quality of its wine production.

As our vineyards are just starting to grow, our wine maker Russ Fish takes pride in sourcing grapes and juice from some of the most renowned Ava’s of Sonoma County, Including Dry Creek Valley and the Petaluma Gap.

Dry Creek Valley is an AVA (American Viticultural Area) in Sonoma County, covering land just northwest of Healdsburg. It is considered to be one of the best terroirs in California for Sauvignon Blanc, also notable for its wines made with the Zinfandel grape although a wealth of other grape varieties occupies the vineyards as well. The valley floor has a cooler climate and is planted to white grape varieties, while the hillsides are warmer and have more red varieties in the vineyards.

Dry Creek Valley's climate is influenced by the Pacific Ocean. Warm days, protected from cool coastal breezes by the mountains, are tempered by afternoon southerlies that bring Sonoma's famous fog into the valley. At night, cold air seeps through the mountains into the vineyards, bringing the temperature down considerably. This temperature variation has long been considered a boon for winemakers, as it slows the ripening process, ensuring grapes develop balanced acidity as they ripen.

The Reis River Ranch resides in the Petaluma Gap which produces premium grapes that make the new AVA one of California's best areas to grow primarily Pinot Noir, Chardonnay.

This AVA is one of several newer American appellations to gain its status based on climate and topography rather than political boundaries. But it is unique in being defined by particular effects of the wind. The zone is limited to those areas where the winds from the Pacific Ocean blowing through the Petaluma gap have a regular minimum speed of eight miles per hour. “The break in the mountain ridges there sucks in the fog and the area gets nice sun, but has cool evenings Our wine maker Russ Fish has long known that grapes grown in the Petaluma Gap ripen more slowly than in surrounding regions, allowing later harvest times which results in more complex flavor development while preserving natural acidity,” Experts link windy conditions to thicker grape skins and smaller grape clusters. This changes skin/juice ratios and results in more intensity.

The grapes and juice acquired from these AVAs makes our wines worthy of a toast given at any special occasion. Whether to complement your next meal or to celebrate a special occasion, we are certain you will enjoy having selected our wines.

Meet our Wine Maker.

The Reis River Ranch is family owned and run – Meet our nephew and Wine Maker Russ Fish.

Russell Fish

Russ started his fermentation science career in 1995 in the beer industry before transitioning into a career as a winemaker. After completing a BS degree in biological sciences at UC Davis, he stayed an extra year to learn the craft of brewing. After completing his studies in brewing, he landed at a microbrewery in Berkeley, working for several years as a Brewer and Brew master. It wasn’t too long before a strong interest in wine took hold, prompting him to make a career change and return to UC Davis to complete a Master’s degree in Viticulture and Enology.

Russ, a Sonoma county native, gained the majority of his winemaking experience in Sonoma County wineries. After graduating, Russ worked a harvest in Healdsburg and Mendocino County, then went on to work for the small family owned Wattle Creek Winery in Alexander Valley, as an Enologist helping to craft sought after Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon and Sauvignon Blanc from Alexander Valley and Mendocino County. In 2008, Russ was hired as Assistant Winemaker at Kunde Family Winery, and did a four-year stint working with estate grown Sonoma valley fruit from the Kunde property. In July of 2012, Russ moved to Vintage Wine Estates to oversee winemaking at Ray’s Station Winery.

Russ believes Sonoma County has excellent growing conditions and hence some of the world’s best vineyards. “Sonoma County is like a playground for winemakers. We can grow everything from racy cool climate Pinot Noir to juicy bombastic Zinfandel. I don’t know of anywhere else in the world where so many varietals can be grown to produce high quality wine.”
