R Vineyards

Back to Winery List

Longtime grape growers in Middletown, CA, the Rosenthal family started a fine line of wines under the brand name R Vineyards in 2014.
“It all started back in the early 70’s, when my parents bought a vineyard in South Lake County,” says winemaker David Rosenthal. “Next thing I knew I had a winemaking degree from UC Davis and grape stained fingers.”

The grapes are sustainably farmed. Located on the North slope of Mt. St. Helena, the fruit is grown in the Jafa soils on the flanks of the Mayacamus Mountains. The terroir of this region provides structure, balance and finesse for the noble red  grape varietals—Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc—and is superb for other red grape varietals—Syrah, Petite Sirah and Old Vine Zinfandel. The Zinfandel is truly old vine; it was planted in 1937.

"The Viognier is our signature wine,” says Rosenthal. “It is an exotic expression of the viognier grape. Jasmine, honeysuckle and mango lead to lush and opulent flavors of peaches, apricots and melon."

These award-winning wines are in the “must taste” category of Lake County wines. All are 100% Lake County and 100% family and community value driven. Produced in limited production.

“We are very pleased that the R Vineyards wines are finally on the market for all to enjoy.” says Monica Rosenthal, Dave’s wife.

Russell Rosenthal (son) assists with the promotion and sales of R Vineyards wines and if you happen to drive by the vines, you might see Janet Rosenthal, Dave’s mother tending the family wine garden.

R Vineyards wines are poured at Lake County Wine Studio and at the Twin PIne ‘Off the Vine' Tasting Room or by appointment. Please contact us at RVineyards@sonic.net.
