1/24 LAURA BOORAS, RIVER BENCH, WOPN, SUNNY ANDERSON, SNACK STADIUMS, STEVE EVANS, THE MOVIE GUY, THE ACADEMY AWARD NOMINATIONS

LAURA BOORAS - GM, RIVERBENCH AND BOARD MEMBER OF THE UPCOMING WORLD OF PINOT NOIR

Riverbench Vineyard was established in 1973, when the first Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes were planted on the bank of the Sisquoc River, known as the Santa Maria Bench. For decades since then, some of the most renowned wineries have purchased our fruit for their wines. In 2004, we began producing our own wines in limited quantities, with many available exclusively through our tasting rooms in Santa Maria and Santa Barbara, California.

Riverbench VINEYARD
Situated on the southeastern edge of the Santa Maria Valley, the northernmost AVA in Santa Barbara County, the vineyard currently consists of 107 acres of Pinot Noir and 77 acres of Chardonnay. We continually evaluate the vines as they age, replanting as necessary.  In 2008, we committed ourselves to our premium sparkling wine program. We continue to work hard making wines that are inspired by Champagne in France. In 2015, we added the third great grape varietal famous in that area, Pinot Meunier, to our vineyard. We anticipate incorporating these grapes into our sparkling wine blends beginning in 2017.

Santa Maria ValleyAVA
The Santa Maria Valley is an appellation known for its diverse microclimates and ideal conditions for growing Burgundian varieties. This distinct wine region is characterized by the valleys in our Pacific coastline which run east to west instead of the more common north to south. Such a geographic peculiarity channels the cool ocean breezes inward, resulting in a mild and moderate climate where Pinot Noir and Chardonnay thrive.
