For centuries French Burgundy wines made from the most ancient Pinot Noir grape had no counterpart. All attempts to produce an American, Pinot Noir wine lead repeatedly to foul-tasting, pale, rose-colored, undrinkable wines. Failures by Californias most famous winemakers growers and agricultural institutions were so numerous that no market existed for an American Pinot Noir wine until :
One grower, using what at the time were revolutionary vineyard practices,
One winemaker without considering all of the risks, and
One real estate businessman ,who dabbled in grapes and wine on weekends
together produced a remarkable Pinot Noir that sparked a varietal revolution that transformed a marginal grape agricultural area into the preeminent American Viticulture Area known as the Russian River Valley.
