Raeburn is an Olde English term which means the river where one goes to drink.
So it’s fitting that Raeburn’s expressive, beautifully balanced wines begin in the
heart of the Russian River Valley where some of the world’s finest Burgundy
grapes are grown.

Raeburn Winery Founder, Derek Benham, was born to consummate birdwatcher and passionate naturalist, Phyllis Benham, who instilled within him a deep respect for nature. Derek founded Raeburn Winery in Phyllis’ honor in 2012, with a mission to protect the thriving and diverse watersheds of the Russian River Valley she so loved and provide a safe habitat for grapes and creatures alike. As a further nod to Phyllis and the Raeburn mission, the graceful egret is honored on the label, a common sight along local waterways.

Raeburn is made in a Certified California Sustainable Winery. Our system and set of beliefs reflect the best practices of sustainable production including mindful winemaking and low impact farming.

TASTING NOTES 

Brilliant crimson in color, Raeburn Russian River Valley Pinot Noir leads with
pleasing aromas of baking spice and vanilla. The palate is marked with stunning
fruit flavors of lush wild blueberry, raspberry and blackberry with undertones of
roasted hazelnut. The finish is graceful and sophisticated.
