Bush Crispo Vineyard

Three generations of Bush Crispos live on the eponymous family-owned vineyard, which is nestled on a small plateau in the sprawling Russian River Valley. Audrey Sr. and Fritz Bush were the first generation to discover the site, a place that would soon grow enviable Chardonnay and Pinot Noir in classic Russian River elegance. Today, the second generation, Audrey Bush, Jr. and her husband Chris Crispo, run the show.

The property comprises just 13.5 acres of equal parts Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Grown near a creek bed, which provides excellent drainage, the vines here produce deep, intense, delicious fruit with beautifully balanced levels of sugar and acidity and an enchantingly complex bouquet of flavors.
