    Winemaker Notes

    Our current rising star wine. Iron Horse was honored to be one of only 60 wineries invited to the 1998 International Pinot Noir Celebration in McMinnville, Oregon. Our particular growing region in cool-climate Green Valley--a special appellation within the Russian River appellation--is at the heart of prime Sonoma County Pinot Noir country. A cutting-edge winemaking technique--cold soaking the fruit and barrel fermentation--brings out an earthy, mushroomy dimension. 1997 was a superb vintage-our very favorite since 1980, and unusually bountiful. Food pairing: Pinot Noir's chief virtue as a food wine is its versatility. It can go with a steak as well as salmon, sea bass, roast chicken, lamb, a "meaty" Portobello mushroom burger, grilled quail, or roasted duck. There's a smoky flavor inherent in the grape that goes with smoked meats. It's delicious with beet salad, grilled leeks, onion pizza, old fashioned baked onion soup or onion confit. It works quite well with many Provencal dishes--brandade, olive tapenade, roasted garlic on crusty French bread, soupe au pistou, stuffed squash blossoms, summer squash and ratatouille. Even grilled zucchini.

    Iron Horse, Sonoma County, California
    Image of winery
    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.

    Iron Horse is best known for its Sparkling Wines, which have been served at the White House since 1985, beginning with the historic U.S.-Russian Summit Meetings ending the Cold War, at the White House Millennium celebrations ushering in the new century, and at the White House dinner honoring the Pope.

    Their Chardonnay is considered a signature wine for the cool, foggy Green Valley region. Pinot Noir is the winery's rising star wine.

    Iron Horse has been named an American icon in a reference book published by Random House called "Icons of the American Market Place". Listed in alphabetical order, Iron Horse takes its place between iPod and Jack Daniel’s, validating Iron Horse’s reputation as a brand backed by pride, passion and quality.

    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.
