Winemaker Donald Patz selected the Russian River Valley as the source for the new Maritana Vineyards wines because having worked with grapes from Mendocino to Monterey; from Napa Valley to the Sonoma Coast the Russian River Valley produced the wines he loved the most.
WHY WE LOVE THE RUSSIAN RIVER VALLEY
There’s something wonderful and beautiful about the Russian River Valley. It’s very complex geologically with a number of different kinds of soils – it has both hillsides and valley floor vineyard sites – it has a long history of grape growing – it is physically a beautiful area – there is a great deal of human expertise growing and tending vineyards in the Russian River Valley – and the climate is ideal for our Chardonnay and Pinot Noir Wines. We are glad to be a part of the Russian River Valley community of wineries.
COMPELLING CHARDONNAYS & DELICATELY PERFUMED PINOT NOIR
All Russian River Valley; Chardonnay and Pinot Noir; Donald Patz’s personal flair; fantastic vineyard sources; top winemaking facility – this is Mr. Patz’s new dream. We look forward to showing you the new wines beginning in September 2018.
