    Rutz Cellars
    After years of living in the Russian River Valley and inspired by the greatness of Burgundy, Keith Rutz dreamed of making great classically- styled wines from the best Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes available in California. His goal was - and is - to craft small lots of wine that will be recognized as worthy competitors to the top French products.

    We guarantee that from harvest to bottling, Rutz Cellars wines are subjected to minimal handling and maximum care, underscoring our commitment to make the finest wines possible. Don't expect boring wines from Rutz Cellars.

    We hope you like them, and invite you to share our passion and dedication to distinction and quality.

    Named “Oenotria” by the ancient Greeks for its abundance of grapevines, Italy has always had a culture that is virtually inextricable from wine. Wine grapes are grown just about everywhere throughout the country—a long and narrow boot-shaped peninsula extending into the Mediterranean and Adriatic Seas. The defining geographical feature of the country is the Apennine Mountain range, extending from Liguria in the north to Calabria in the south. The island of Sicily nearly grazes the toe of Italy’s boot, while Sardinia lies to the country’s west. Climate varies significantly throughout the country, with temperature being somewhat more dependent on elevation than latitude, though it is safe to generalize that the south is warmer. Much of the highest quality viticulture takes place on gently rolling, picturesque hillsides.

    Italy boasts more indigenous varieties than any other country—between 500 and 800, depending on whom you ask—and most wine production relies upon these native grapes. In some regions, international varieties have worked their way in, but their use is declining in popularity, especially as younger growers begun to take interest in rediscovering forgotten local specialties. Sangiovese is the most widely planted variety in the country, reaching its greatest potential in parts of Tuscany. Nebbiolo is the prized grape of Piedmont in the northwest, producing singular and age-worthy wines at its best. Other important varieties include Montepulciano, Trebbiano, Barbera, Nero d’Avola, and of course, Pinot Grigio.
