Rosati Family

Rosati Wine enthusiasts describe the wine as a complex, dark and earthy flavor likened to blackberries, plums, and boysenberries. This is classic, California Cabernet at its best. Their original bud wood was a gift in 1987 from Dave Bennion, a co-founder of Ridge Vineyards. Dave selected vines from Jimsomare Vineyard and planted those cuttings at 1,000 feet above the Russian River at the Rosati family ranch in southern Mendocino County. For many years Dave had made himself at home hunting mushrooms and pigs at the ranch; during these joyous times, he discovered the most suitable vineyard sites. Rosati wines are produced from the drain wines following a cold soak and slow extraction. Wines are stored for 18-20 months in the finest once or twice used French Oak cooperage. Typically, five years post harvest, the Rosati’s release their wines to top tier restaurants, wine bars and retail establishments.
