Domaine Anderson is located near the small, pioneering wine-growing community of Philo. The cooling marine layer and varied terroir that is characteristic of this Northern California coastal region provide perfect conditions for the cultivation of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes. It was the region’s ideal grape growing conditions that led Jean Claude Rouzaud, Chairman of Louis Roederer, to this remote corner of Mendocino County in the early 1980s. In search of the perfect vineyard sites in which to grow Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes, Rouzaud knew the remote valley’s sloping hillsides and cooler climate would provide optimal conditions for the fulfillment of his vision to produce world-class wines of the highest standards of distinction. Since those early days of discovery, the Rouzaud family has acquired land ranging from the cooler coastal region to the warmer inland valley, optimal vineyard sites for the cultivation of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes. The family’s commitment to land stewardship and sustainable practices extends to each vineyard and supports its vision of ensuring the health of the land for generations to come. In 2011, the Rouzaud family acquired the Dach family property, a beautiful, small ranch in the heart of the Anderson Valley. Over time, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes were planted and the Domaine Anderson winery, designed specifically for small lot production of site-specific Pinot Noir and Chardonnay wines, was built. Today, 50 acres of vineyard land located throughout the Anderson Valley, a sampling of the region’s finest terroirs, is dedicated to growing Pinot Noir and Chardonnay for Domaine Anderson Estate and Single Vineyard wines. It is the vision of Domaine Anderson to express the exceptional character of their Anderson Valley vineyards for the enjoyment of wine lovers for years to come. Tastings are available seven days a week from 11 am to 5 pm, specializing in high-end Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.
