' Moshin Vineyards - Vineyards


The Estate Vineyards are planted along Westside Road at the southwestern border of The Middle Reach neighborhood of the Russian River Valley.  As the river bends west towards Guerneville and the Pacific, we receive ample fog and maritime influence rendering daily thirty-five degree temperature swings and excellent growing conditions for Pinot Noir. Floral and spice tones in the wine define this classic neighborhood.
