The Bacigalupi Vineyards are located in the Russian River Valley, in Sonoma County. This iconic grape growing appellation is known for producing some of the best Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, Sonoma County has to offer. The Bacigalupi Vineyards are located in the northernmost portion of the Russian River Valley, closest to the town of Healdsburg and the Dry Creek Valley. The cooler weather and combination of volcanic, alluvial and sedimentary soils create wines of balance and elegance.
Helen and Charles Bacigalupi acquired the ranch in 1956 and slowly began to cultivate the existing vines and plant new acreage. Now in their fourth generation of farming they have some of the most sought after fruit in the Russian River Valley.
The Gregory James Bacigalupi Pinot Noir is made up of a combination of clones that create a multidimensional wine that is an expression of the varietals Burgundian lineage. With aromas of black tea, raspberry and strawberry and hints of white pepper. The palette is balanced with fine tannins, refreshing acid, red fruit and undertones of vanilla bean from barrel aging in 100% French oak barrels.
