To craft Rodney Strong Reserve wines, small, individual estate vineyard blocks that have proven over the years to offer extraordinary depth of character are isolated. The lots are fermented separately in our small lot artisan cellar program, then evaluated again six months after fermentation to ensure they remain worthy of the limited-production Reserve program.
Rodney Strong, one of the pioneers of Sonoma County’s modern wine industry, established Sonoma County’s 13th bonded winery in 1959. The winery’s 14 unique estate vineyards represent a perfect combination of varietal selection and place. The winery’s current offerings include sauvignon blanc, chardonnay, pinot noir, zinfandel, merlot, cabernet sauvignon, Symmetry, a red meritage wine and a couple of single-vineyard cabernet sauvignons from Alexander Valley.
