The guiding principle behind the wines of Davis Bynum has always been and will forever be to let the land speak, specifically the terroir of the Russian River Valley.
When Davis Bynum started making wine in the Russian River Valley, Pinot Noir was not commonly produced in the region—in fact, this delicate and often fickle varietal was largely ignored in favor of the more robust Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes. But in 1973, Davis Bynum became enamored with the Pinot Noir grapes from Joe Rochioli vineyards. The wine produced from that year’s grapes was, as Davis says, “really good, surprisingly good.”
We invite you to enjoy this collection of recipes created to perfectly pair with our Davis Bynum wines.

Originally distinguished as the first winery on Westside Road in Healdsburg, California, Davis Bynum was first to produce a single vineyard Pinot Noir from the Russian River Valley. Today, more than forty years later, the heritage of Davis Bynum lives on through the hand crafted creation of wines grown exclusively in Russian River Valley.
Our fascination with the particular qualities each vineyard holds led us to create a series of Russian River Valley wines made to highlight the special terroir that makes Davis Bynum wine legendary. Cellar-worthy and unique, these wines tell the story of Davis Bynum like never before.
