A Birthday Virtual Tasting
Join us for Shaye's 40th!
Friday, January 15th, 7pm EST
Join us Online to Taste Amazing Wine, Share Great Memories, and Create New Ones!
At Russian River Vineyards, we love to celebrate with great friends and great wine. That's a little more difficult to do nowadays, but we don't let that stop us. With an RRV virtual tasting, you'll get to sample premium wines and celebrate from the comfort and safety of your home.
Our Winemaker and your host, Giovanni (Gio) Balistreri, has selected two special wines for you to try (listed below). Gio will guide you through a tasting of these wines and provide some insight into his grape farming and winemaking process.

2019 Sauvignon Blanc | Dutton Ranch
In the tradition of classic California Sauvignon Blancs, this is a beautifully balanced wine featuring a bright acidity with fruit flavors that make it easily drinkable. Aromatics of freshly cut grass, apricot, and a distinct minerality. Bright & fresh on the palate, with a tart acidity. A refreshing summer wine that pairs with oysters, shrimp, and most shellfish.
2017 Pinot Noir | Classic Cuvee
This is a special blend of premium single-vineyard Pinot Noirs, carefully crafted from vineyards representing the diverse neighborhoods of the Russian River Valley. This wine showcases our wine region and the beautiful quality of Pinot Noir grapes that have come to symbolize it as a world-class winemaking region.
"I'm looking forward to celebrating with Shaye to commemorate this important birthday. I always enjoy sharing and talking wine with all of our friends. We have some great wines for the group to try, and it will be a lot of fun."
Giovanni Balistreri, Winemaker
