The home of La Crema and the heart of Sonoma County Wine Country, the Russian River Valley AVA is one of the world’s premier wine-growing regions. One unique element of the area is the Pacific Ocean’s maritime influence which moderates the warms days of the growing season allowing grapes to ripen and develop slowly. The unique weather patterns combined with a diversity of well-draining soils make the appellation well suited to produce cool-climate Pinot Noir.

When La Crema was founded in 1979, the Russian River Valley had yet to establish itself as one of California’s most important regions for Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. The first few vintages at La Crema were devoted to learning the intricacies of cold-climate viticulture and winemaking. In 1993, Jess Jackson bought La Crema. With the help of winemaker Dan Goldfield, he elevated the quality of the wines and enhanced the winery’s reputation as a top producer of Burgundian varieties in California. The unifying factors with all of these sites are their cool, windy climates and marine-based soils.
