Martaella Estate Pinot Noir
This single-vineyard Pinot Noir is from our estate vineyard at the winery that is named in honor of the mothers of Joe Anderson and Mary Dewane. Only Heirloom Pinot Noir clones from were chosen and with ideal fruit and stem maturity, we often include ~25% whole clusters.
Cohn Estate Pinot Noir
Planted in 1970, this spectacular Pinot Noir Vineyard would be considered old by California standards. Farmed organically, with minimal irrigation and planted to a massale selection of Pinot Noirs (likely Martini 13 and Pommard) our vineyard outdates most other plantings in the AVA by 20+ years.
Tilton Hill Estate Pinot Noir
This single vineyard Pinot Noir comes from our coldest estate vineyard, which is perched on a ridge top near the town of Freestone, located just a few miles from the Pacific Ocean in the Sonoma Coast AVA planted to both heirloom and Dijon clones of Pinot Noir that produce very small clusters.
Three Sisters Chardonnay
This Chardonnay comes from two selected blocks within one vineyard, planted to clones Dijon 76, 95 and 96, on the third coastal ridge from the ocean, near the town of Seaview. The low-fertility soils and the cool temperature near the Pacific Ocean produce a distinctive Chardonnay.
La Pommeraie Chardonnay
This vineyard sits along Laguna Ridge at the edge of the Green Valley AVA. Meticulously farmed and planted at a very high density to Dijon clones 548 and 95, this site was once a spectacular apple orchard and therefore named the wine ‘La Pommeraie,’ French for apple orchard.
For a Benovian, labor is life, and life is fulfilling. Winemaker and co-owner Mike Sullivan grew up tending his family’s vines on Sonoma Mountain. Proprietors Mary Dewane and Joe Anderson were both raised on hard work by their fathers, Ben Dewane and Novian Anderson. Hard work brings its own rewards, they would say. Be the best at what you do. Surround yourself with good people, and let them get to work. And never, ever produce anything that wouldn’t make you proud.
Here in the Russian River Valley, we are all part of a close-knit community that finds joy in purpose. We’re at our happiest during harvest, when friends join us on the sorting line and the winery and vineyards are buzzing with activity and camaraderie.
After years of humble, hard work, we believe that we are creating something truly beautiful that draws people together.
