Sonoma-Cutrer Vineyards

Sonoma-Cutrer is dedicated to the pursuit of original expression in our wines. Each wine reflects its regional and seasonal climate, its specific vineyard character – its “terroir”. From the very first vintage of Sonoma-Cutrer Chardonnay to the limited production of our world-class Pinot Noir, this dedication has taken root and continues to grow. Our "Grand Cru" philosophy is a unique assimilation of traditional Burgundian winemaking methods and our own technological innovation. It's a perfect balance of tradition and discovery, bringing forth noble wines that express a sense of place, vintage after vintage.

Founded as a vineyard company in 1973, Sonoma-Cutrer's foundation was built upon a selection of several key vineyard properties in the marginal bench lands, hillsides and rocky foothills in what later became recognized as the Sonoma Coast Appellation – an area with long, even growing seasons due to the cool and foggy coastal climate. Ground was broken for a new winery in 1981.Over the next several years, a winery that is the envy of the industry was constructed at the Cutrer Vineyard, home base for the vineyard operation. Sonoma-Cutrer built prototype sorting tables and cooling tunnels to preserve the highest-quality grapes. In addition, Sonoma-Cutrer was one of the first wineries in California to use membrane presses to crush whole clusters of grapes and to construct a temperature- and humidity-controlled cave-like cellar for barrel aging. No expense is spared in the production of the wine.

Today, Sonoma-Cutrer's flagship wine, Russian River Ranches, is the top selling Chardonnay in America's finest restaurants according to the annual Wine & Spirits magazine. For many wine consumers, the name Sonoma-Cutrer is synonymous with superb Chardonnay. We are looking forward to your visit so you can experience our Chardonnay and Pinot Noir where they are created.
