- Iron Horse Chardonnay:
A pioneer in the Green Valley appellation within the Russian River area of Sonoma County, the Iron Horse family is building a legacy of prestige sparkling wines and elegant estate-bottled Chardonnay and Pinot Noir within a "holistic" environment of natural balance, cultivation and love of the land. The Iron Horse name came from a train that cut across the property in the 1890s. The logo, the rampant horse on a weather vane, came from a 19th century weathervane found while clearing away the rubble to build the winery. Their Chardonnay is considered a signature wine for the cool, foggy Green Valley region.
- Ferrari- Carano Cabernet Sauvignon:
In 1979, Don and Rhonda Carano purchased a single 60-acre parcel of land in Sonoma County's Alexander Valley. The parcel included a restored 1904 farmhouse, a barn and 30 acres of grapes. So began a mission to acquire premium vineyard properties throughout the county, because Don and Rhonda truly believed, and still do, that owning their own vineyards is the best way to ensure the highest quality grapes. Vintage after vintage, the wines exhibit a remarkable consistency of style and elegance.
- Twomey Cellars Pinot Noir:
Twomey combines their winemaking experience from decades of producing Silver Oak Cabernets with a spirit of innovation, enabling them to work with varietals other than Cabernet Sauvignon, such as Merlot and Pinot Noir. In 2000, they had the opportunity to secure a beautiful piece of land in the heart of the Russian River Valley, a perfect site for growing Pinot Noir. Twomey was founded with the same philosophy that has guided Silver Oak since 1972: make food-friendly wines that are deliciously drinkable upon release.
