Located along the Russian River in Mendocino County, RIVINO is a boutique family winery. They handcraft wines from select grapes grown on the family’s Schrader Ranch Vineyard. Being surrounded by grapes, and desiring to sample the fruit from our vines, they began making small amounts of wine for themselves. Like many things in life, that simple desire has now evolved. Realizing that they were producing far more wine than they could consume on their own, they decided it was time to take the next step. Hence the creation of RIVINO, a 100% estate family winery.
RIVINO is a combination of the words: RIVER and VINO. “Where the river becomes the wine.”
When you look at a bottle of RIVINO, you will notice that each one displays how many cases were produced, and which bottle you own. Producing wine in these small lots on the premises and with their own grapes allows Rivino to have complete control over all aspects of the winemaking process.
