WHY:            Founded in 2004 by Rutger de Vink, a former marine and corporate executive turned vigneron, RdV’s 100-acre vineyard sits on a steep, southern-exposure hillside with rocky soil and granite under the surface, creating a terroir ripe for growing Bordeaux varietals – Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and Petit Verdot. RdV Vineyards has produced world-class wines that marry the elegance of Bordeaux with the bold spirit of California. Additional information can be found at:
