Brand Overview

Founded in 1982, Roederer Estate winery is nestled in Mendocino County’s cool, fog-shrouded Anderson Valley. As the California outpost of Champagne Louis Roederer, Roederer Estate winery builds upon a centuries-old tradition of fine winemaking.

Roederer Estate’s sparkling wines are produced using only Estate-grown grapes from the winery’s own vineyards. The multi-vintage Roederer Estate Anderson Valley Brut debuted in 1988 to great acclaim, followed by the Roederer Brut Rosé and Roederer Estate’s tête de cuvée, L’Ermitage.

The Region

THE ANDERSON VALLEY:

The Anderson Valley offers cool climate and well-drained soils that are ideally suited to the Roederer winemaking style.

The cool, fog-shrouded Anderson Valley is 3 hours northwest of San Francisco and 45 minutes east of the Pacific Ocean. This microclimate provides growing conditions that are very similar to those found in Champagne, including a longer growing season.
