The Story of Stuhlmuller Vineyards Since 1982, Stuhlmuller Vineyards has built its reputation as a premier grower and seller of Sonoma County’s best grapes.

The History of Russian River Vineyards

2019-01-17T02:35:12+00:00

The History of Russian River Vineyards Nestled in Forestville, Russian River Vineyards has quite a story to tell. With its founding taking place in the 1890s, the estate was built as a modest family farming business. However, over time, the small farmhouse became a roadhouse, and an old Hop Kiln style building became a winery. While the vineyard was one of the region’s first, in the 1990s, the beautiful estate became forgotten. However, in 2008, Russian River Vineyards received a second chance. Founding partners Chris O’Neill, Barbara Sattler, Giovanni Balistreri, and Anthony Austin worked diligently to restore the beautiful estate. Through their efforts, Russian River Vineyards once again operates and provides memorable experiences to all who visit. Since its reopening, countless wine enthusiasts have enjoyed visiting Russian River Vineyards. The tasting lounge is open Sunday-Thursday 12 p.m. - 6 p.m. On Friday and Saturday, the tasting room is open from 12 p.m. - 7 p.m. While reservations are not required, they are recommended due to the estate’s
