The Rushin’ River
Abstract River of Wine Painting
If you want to capture the essence of Sonoma County’s Wine region, then this Rushin’ River painting is what you need! Here in Sonoma county, we say the wine flows like the Russian River in January! And if you’ve been here, or live here, then you also know how good the Pinot Noir from this region is…
This bottle of pinot noir wine is pouring out a river of wine through the mountains.

Not only is the area beautiful, but the Russian River Valley AVA (American Viticultural Area) accounts for about one-sixth of the total planted vineyard acreage in Sonoma County. The area generally lies between Sebastopol and Santa Rosa in the south, and Forestville and Healdsburg in the north. The Russian River Valley has a characteristically cool climate, heavily affected by fog generated by the valley’s proximity to the Pacific Ocean. Pinot Noir and Chardonnay are cool climate varietals that this area is known for.
In Sonoma County alone there are almost 60,000 acres of vineyards and more than 425 wineries!
