We recently had the opportunity to attend a vineyard walk sponsored by the Russian River Valley Winegrowers at Mirabelle Vineyard off Wohler Road. The vineyard walks give RRVW members an opportunity to check out others’ growing strategies here in the Russian River Valley.

Tasting the Wines of Olivet Road 2014

Olivet Road, our nearest neighbor to the east of our own Laguna Road, is a long road with long views over vineyards that have been around for decades and wineries that are family owned. More often than not, the winemaker will be pouring for you while his dog takes a nap at your feet. Olivet Road is the epitome of welcoming yet unpretentious Russian River Valley. On Saturday, April 12, nine wineries will celebrate their road with the Taste of Olivet. Wine enthusiasts will get a chance to enjoy award-winning wines, food pairings, entertainment and that awesome, laid-back friendliness that only Olivet Road can offer.
