EnRoute was established in the Russian River Valley in 2007 by the partners of Napa Valley's Far Niente winery. Devoted to producing Russian River Valley Pinot Noir, EnRoute introduced its first wine, "Les Pommiers," in May 2009. Les Pommiers is named for the apple orchards that once flourished in the region, and reflects a blend of vineyards primarily from Green Valley and the upper Middle Reach area of the Russian River Valley AVA.

The name, EnRoute, is a nod to the journey the partners including Beth Nickel, Erik Nickel, Jeremy Nickel, Dirk Hampson and Larry Maguire have taken on their way to producing Pinot Noir, which began in the 1980s in Burgundy. While Far Niente's vision is exclusively focused on Napa Valley Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon, the partners still enjoyed traveling and tasting the great Pinot Noirs of the world. Eventually, sister winery Nickel & Nickel's single vineyard program provided the opportunity to venture into the Russian River Valley. After a few years of producing wines from Russian River, the partners decided to make a serious commitment to the region, acquired two remarkable vineyards and established EnRoute, devoted to Russian River Valley Pinot Noir.

TASTING NOTES: Wine Spectator "Aromas of green apple, grapefruit, wet rock and tangerine are fresh and vibrant, with mouthwatering acidity and a lively juiciness that lingers."
