Robert Rue Vineyard

We invite you to visit our small-production winery located between Fulton and Santa Rosa, California,  in the Russian River Valley AVA.  Our specialty is small lots of handmade Zinfandel produced from our century-old vineyard.  Our annual production is less than 1000 cases, so when we say small, we mean small.

In 2001, after 28 years of selling exceptional grapes to well-known Sonoma County wineries, we made the first vintage of  Wood Road Reserve Zinfandel.  Now with countless Gold Medals and other accolades for our wines, our tasting room is open for you to come by and experience the magic of our Zinfandels for yourself.  A trip to our winery is like a visit to a favorite friend's country home.  Sip on our Wood Road Reserve Zinfandel, enjoy a stroll through the century-old vines and have a picnic on the tasting room patio overlooking the vineyards.

With the dedication of our growing and winemaking practices, we are proud of each bottle of award-winning Zinfandel.  We may be small on size, but we are big on taste!

-Robert and Carlene Rue
