Winemaker Notes

This wine has a light, licorice red tone. On the nose are honey-brandied cherries, holiday spice and anise. Gamey or leathery notes are typical of this vineyard. On the palate are carmelized apple notes, vanilla, and maraschino cherry. The wine's texture is soft, but it also has very fine, coating tannins.The finish is long and has notes of Tawny.

How about a magic pinot noir ride, now wouldn't that be cool? The 2013 Romililly Pinot Noir from the Van der Kamp Vineyard is one of the purest wines in all the lands. Whether you love the Old or New World, this wine is something special. Try paring with wild goose or turkey that ran wild. Medium to deep garnet color; blueberry and dried herbs, fine depth; medium bodied, textured on the palate; dry, medium acidity, well balanced; ripe fruit blueberry flavors; lingering finish, lush aftertaste. (Tasted: March 16, 2016, San Francisco, CA)

Romililly Winery Image
When our family gets together, we always have wine. Our uncle August “Joe” Briggs never comes to a family dinner without bringing a bottle of wine that he and his friends made. At barbeques, camping trips, and formal sit-down dinners, wine has always been a constant. When we drink a great glass of wine, it always reminds us of growing up, sharing meals and stories with friends and family. Wine brings back memories of adventures we’ve had and people we’ve met. It’s how our family interacts. When we realized that we could make wine for a living, we knew it was what we were meant to do, and we dove in headfirst. Our winemaking journey has brought us closer together as brothers and deepened the love of wine that we’ve always shared.

In 2006, we had an opportunity to purchase several tons of Pinot Noir, our favorite varietal. It cost us our life savings, but the opportunity was too good to refuse. Using the facilities at August Briggs Winery, we produced a wine that was all our own—the first vintage of Romililly Pinot Noir. We made a lot of mistakes and learned a lot of things we probably should have known already[e1] [BH2] , but somehow we pulled through. Our little 200-case vintage got a lot of attention, earning a 93 rating from the Pinot Report. For the next five years, we kept at it, slowly increasing our production, but never making quite enough to satisfy demand.

Uncle Joe sold August Briggs Winery in 2010, and Romililly had to find a new home. Fortunately, we found Talisman Winery in Sonoma, a winery designed to produce high-end, small-lot Pinot Noirs run by some of the best people in the industry. Our first year on our own brought a lot of new challenges, but we became better winemakers for it. Now, we’re producing new wines in addition to our signature Pinot Noir, and we’ve partnered with several amazing vineyards to create our best vintages yet.

Romililly is all about family, learning by doing, taking on more than we can probably handle, and including wine in every part of our lives. Like Uncle Joe, we’re upstarts in the winemaking industry, not winemaking royalty, and our renegade approach influences the wine we make and keeps us hungry for success. Running our small, family winery is always an adventure—and we hope that you’ll make our wine a part of your own adventures.

A standout region for its decidedly Californian take on Burgundian varieties, the Russian River Valley is named for the eponymous river that flows through it. While there are warm pockets of the AVA, it is mostly a cool-climate growing region thanks to breezes and fog from the nearby Pacific Ocean.

Chardonnay and Pinot Noir reign supreme in Russian River, with the best examples demonstrating a unique combination of richness and restraint. The cool weather makes Russian River an ideal AVA for sparkling wine production, utilizing the aforementioned varieties. Zinfandel also performs exceptionally well here. Within the Russian River Valley lie the smaller appellations of Chalk Hill and Green Valley. The former, farther from the ocean, is relatively warm, with a focus on red and white Bordeaux varieties. The latter is the coolest, foggiest parcel of the Russian River Valley and is responsible for outstanding Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.
