Via Giusti Ranch, once known as “La Colina” (The Hill), was founded by Angelo Giusti Sr. in the 1870s, one of the fi rst Italian immigrant families to settle in the Forestville region. Giusti Ranch has made a significant impact on Sonoma County agriculture for over 140 years. The ranch has contributed their farming and services to different parts of the community with several crops over the last century, including olives, grapes, cherries, prunes, apples, and now back to grapes in 2000.
Today, the family legacy continues with grapes, apples, and olives. In 2000, the family planted 9 of its remaining 22 acre Russian River Valley appellation ranch with Pinot Noir. From 2004-08, they sold their grapes to the Benziger family, and from 2009 to present, Giusti has produced wines that are renown as some of the best Pinot’s in the World. Their 2013 Giusti Ranch Single Vineyard Estate Pinot received a 95 Score from Robert Parker and is widely recognized as the best Pinot Noir of 2013.
The Decision, 2014 Giusti Ranch Pinot Noir is one of most exciting wines ever produced from the Famed Giusti Ranch. An exotic and enticing bouquet of cinnamon, red and black berries along with baked Cherry Pie leads into a core of intense fruit. Aged 16 months in French Oak, this is a full bodied wine on the pallet with a purity of concentrated fruit, layered and textured personality.
