Romanini Vineyard

Antonio Romanini, an Italian immigrant, planted his first vineyard in Sonoma Valley in 1954. The alluvial soils of this vineyard produce perfectly balanced Pinot Noir, with compact clusters and yields rarely higher than 2.5 tons per acre from Pommard and Calera Clones on 101-14 rootstock. The fruit intensity is influenced by the growing season’s cool nights and warm days. This maritime climate is conducive to growing some of the finest Pinot Noir with opulent red color, voluptuous body and pure rich dark fruit flavors with a well-balanced palate due to natural acidity.  Adding to the provenance of this vineyard is the fact that it is farmed by the originator and guru of organic vineyard farming in California, Phil Coturri, and his management team from Enterprise Vineyards

Ernest Vineyards blends a modern-day commitment to crafting elegant wines with a family history steeped in service, humility and diligence. Our grapes are grown in the Sonoma Coast and Russian River appellations of California, by independent farmers who still till their own soil. The wines themselves bring together new-world winemaking techniques and an old-world style of working with small vineyards and low-yield fruit. We make wine because we are passionate about the process, the experience of drinking something wonderful, and the interpersonal connections that can result.
