Welcome to the Russell family Syrah vineyard and ranch. Nestled in the bench hills of the Russian River, our ranch wakes and sleeps to a blanket of fog and and the wild coyote. 

Our family owned and run vineyard is just two acres and sits on a hilltop in the middle of our 208-acre ranch with steep oak, madrone, and manzanita covered hills.

Our family business was started by my dad over 50 years ago! 

 A creek flows through our property in winter and the neighbor dairyman grazes his cows on the slopes in the back of the ranch.

We are located off of scenic Westside Road, home to many wineries and vineyards along the west side of the Russian River. Neighboring wineries along that road include: Hop Kiln, Rochioli, Arista, Thomas George Estates, Porter Creek, Gary Farell, and Moshin, where our wine is produced.


Hi! I'm Professor Bruce Russell, and this is my wife Bette, a retired school teacher. When we are not busy chasing our grandchildren around or teaching (I'm still a full-time professor!), we are pouring all of our love and energy into our family vineyard.
