At Frei Brothers, we craft our acclaimed award-winning wines by selecting the right grapes grown in the right places within Sonoma County's premier growing regions, then showcasing the pure varietal character of each variety.

Regional Information

The signature cooling maritime influences of the Russian River Valley serve to balance its warm days with cool, refreshing evenings and fog-cloaked mornings. This unique macroclimate allows for the slow and even maturation of our fruit, developing distinct flavours reflective of this unique Sonoma terroir. Malolactic fermentation was completed for all barrel fermented lots, resulting in a plush texture and deep, layered flavours that express the terroir of the Russian River Valley.

Vinification Details

Vintage 2016 began with a significantly wet winter that contributed to an early bud break. Cooler temperatures in spring balanced by damp weather prevented the threat of frost. The summer went without incident until a damp and grey August kept our vineyard crew active in thinning and pulling leaves to keep the fruit clean. In the final weeks leading up to harvest sunny warm days allowed the fruit to hang on the vines and ripen cleanly, maintaining the crisp acidity and bright fruit characteristics.
