About Us
  • About Us

    Deloach vineyards
    As a pioneering producer and winegrower of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Zinfandel in Sonoma’s Russian River Valley, DeLoach Vineyards has been experimenting with and perfecting the best combinations of soil, rootstock and clones for over three decades. In 2003, the Boisset family brought two generations of sustainable winemaking experience from Burgundy, France to California’s Russian River Valley and pulled up the estate vineyards that had just produced Wine Enthusiast magazine’s 2004 wine of the year: DeLoach Vineyards’ 30th Anniversary Cuvée Pinot Noir. The award-winning vineyards were replanted with cover crops in order to revitalize the soil and in the meantime, DeLoach partnered with winegrowers equally dedicated to and passionate about eco-friendly farming practices and the production of high-quality wines. Wine & Spirits magazine named DeLoach Vineyards a Top 100 Winery for the twelfth time in the winery’s history in 2012.

Our Wines

At DeLoach Vineyards, we focus on small-lot winemaking, giving exceptional care and attention to our Russian River Valley, O.F.S. and Vineyard Designate wines. Our passion is Pinot Noir – the noble variety of Burgundy that demands a delicate, labor-intensive process to showcase the exceptional terroir and complexity of the Russian River Valley and beyond.

Our Story

Origins

The entrepreneurial and pioneering DeLoach family, were Huguenots who emigrated from the Loire Valley of France to California in the 17th century. Consequently, it came as no surprise that their descendants would become prominent winegrowers in Sonoma’s Russian River Valley. Cecil and Christine DeLoach became winemakers in the early 1970s and began producing some of the finest Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Zinfandel wines in the region. As an homage to their French roots, the family chose the Fleur de Lys as the symbol for DeLoach Vineyards.  

Success

The DeLoach Vineyards happens to be situated in the Russian River Valley of Sonoma, which is known for a terroir quite similar to that of Burgundy, France. The nutrient-rich soil and northern California climate has enabled the DeLoach winemakers to produce some of the finest award-winning Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Zinfandel wines for several decades. Due to a dedication to the terroir and superior winemaking, Wine & Spirits magazine has included DeLoach Vineyard on its Top 100 Winery list time and time again.

Sustainability

In 2003, the Boisset family brought two generations of sustainable winemaking experience from Burgundy, France to California’s Russian River Valley. Under the guidance of Jean-Charles Boisset, the decision was made to pull up the estate vineyards that had just produced Wine Enthusiast magazine’s 2004 wine of the year: DeLoach Vineyards’ 30th Anniversary Cuvée Pinot Noir. The award-winning vineyards were replanted with cover crops in order to revitalize the soil and in the meantime, DeLoach partnered with winegrowers equally dedicated to and passionate about eco-friendly farming practices and the production of high-quality wines. Today, the estate vineyards are both organic and Biodynamic® certified.

Renaissance

In 2014, DeLoach Vineyards celebrated a renaissance of the acclaimed Russian River Valley estate after a number of renovations were completed to pay tribute to the pioneering and entrepreneurial spirit of the DeLoach family. DeLoach Vineyards launched a selection of educational experiences aimed at transforming the winery into a premier exploration and discovery destination in Sonoma County. Today, guests can take a self-guided tour through the estate’s Theater of Nature, to learn about sustainable, organic, and Biodynamic farming, or choose from a number of one-of-a-kind wine tasting experiences and tours available only at DeLoach Vineyards.

  • Brian Maloney

    Winemaking has been Brian's family tradition ever since his great grandfather planted vineyards and founded a Napa Valley winery at the turn of the century. His mother’s family has been growing grapes and making wine in California for four generations and is still involved in the wine industry today. Brian also learned the importance of the land from his father, whose family has been involved in agriculture in rural Sonoma County for the past 150 years.

    Inspired by the story of his great grandfather, Brian left the family farm to study Enology at The University of California at Davis and graduated in 2003. He worked his first crush at one of DeLoach’s neighbors in the Russian River Valley, Balletto Vineyards.  His winemaking talents and natural way with the land were quickly noticed by DeLoach’s former winemaker, who recruited Brian to join the DeLoach team in 2003.
