Roederer Estate

California, the most populous state of the United States, located on the Pacific coast of North America is bordered by Oregon, Nevada, Arizona and Mexico. The four largest cities are Los Angeles, San Diego, San Jose and San Francisco. California is also the home of and wine producing regions such as Santa Barbara and Northern California's Wine Country.
Founded in 1981, Roederer Estate is nestled in Mendocino County's cool, fog-shrouded Anderson Valley. As the California outpost of Champagne Louis Roederer, Roederer Estate builds upon a centuries-old custom of fine winemaking. Roederer Estate's luminous wines are produced using only estate-grown grapes from the winery's own vineyards. Carrying on the custom of Champagne Louis Roederer in France, special oak-aged reserve wines are added to each blend.
The multi-vintage Anderson Valley Brut debuted in 1988 to great praise followed by the Brut Rose and Roederer Estate's tete de cuvee, L'Ermitage. Roederer's idea of tough quality is based on vineyard ownership, as well as the addition of specially-aged wines from Roederer's extensive reserve cellars, which ensure constancy year after year. Roederer is valued for its flagship multi-vintage champagne, Brut Premier and its exceptional Brut Vintage, Blanc de Blancs and Brut Rose champagnes.
The House of Louis Roederer has used the customary elements of the method champenoise process to make the finest champagnes since 1776. At present these age-old techniques are combined with leading-edge technology at Roederer Estate. Roederer Estate grows 100 percent of the grapes used in its sparkling wines.
Nestled into Mendocino's rolling hills and bordered by vineyards, Roederer Estate is barely visible from the roadway. The rural exterior may not be what one expects from the esteemed House that created Cristal. Although the company could simply have built a sophisticated showplace, Roederer president Jean-Claude Rouzaud decided on a more modest design that would not detract from the region's natural beauty and the relaxed charm of the Anderson Valley.
Their sparkling wines are made from 100 percent estate-grown Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes from Roederer's own vineyards. The wines are blended with oak-aged reserve wines to make harmonious, dry and complex sparkling wines. There are many wonderful famous as well as some not so well known areas in California Wine Country that are just right for an enjoyable day of wine tasting.
