Vinography Images: The Russian River

The Russian River
Somewhere deep in the fog of this image, grapes are busy growing. This is the engine that makes the Pinot Noir of the Russian River Valley so wonderful. The river acts as a catheter, drawing the fog inland to cool the grapes and provide the large diurnal shifts in temperature necessary to grow world class Pinot and Chardonnay. — Alder Yarrow
