The Estate Vineyards

The Moshin Estate is comprised of four vineyards, all planted along Westside Road at the southwestern border of the Middle Reach neighborhood of the Russian River Valley AVA (American Viticultural Area). This classic neighborhood is known for producing textured wines with ripe flavors and gentle aromatics of florals, earth, and baking spices — elements you’ll find in the various styles of Moshin Vineyards Pinot Noir.

Our estate vineyards are named Moshin Estate, Calliope, Rosalina, and River Myst Haven. Set either near or adjacent to the Russian River and its maritime influence, all four vineyards benefit from the Russian River Valley’s ideal growing conditions for premium Pinot Noir: ample morning fog, daily temperature swings of 35 degrees, and in some cases, the golden-hued mix of sandy loam and clay known as Goldridge soil.
