In 1973, the Pellegrini family purchased a 70-acre apple and plum orchard on West Olivet Road in Santa Rosa. This exceptional Russian River Valley property was converted to vineyard in 1975. This heritage property is one of the oldest existing Pinot vineyards in the appellation and has been widely recognized as a prime example of the classic style of Russian River Valley Pinot Noir. The Olivet Lane Vineyard was one of the first Pinot Noir estates in the Russian River Valley, and over the years has been the grape source for many of the Valley’s Pinot Noir luminaries.
Olivet Lane Pinot Noir is carefully tended by hand from vineyard to bottle using artisanal methods and obsessive attention to detail to preserve the greatness of the fruit and achieve exceptional textural complexity.
