The winery estate on Westside Road in Healdsburg is located in the heart of Russian River Valley; a premiere growing region known for producing exceptional Pinot Noir. This is good news for Moshin Vineyards winemaker and owner Rick Moshin, who has turned a labor of love into a thriving and welcoming business.
Moshin, a former math professor at San Jose State University who loves Pinot, began tinkering with wine in his basement. Opportunity knocked, and he and his family bought the property on Westside Road, which became his winemaker’s dream-come-true and full time passion. The tasting room opened in 2005.
Moshin specializes in Pinot Noir, known as a finicky grape that needs to be handled tenderly, but can produce stellar and versatile results. The winery produces no less than 12 unique Pinot Noirs a year.
Enthusiastic pourers and other staff will guide visitors through a tasting of five wines from the rotating menu, highlighting Pinot Noir and several other small-lot varietals..
Moshin prides itself on its friendly atmosphere, perfect for first-timers, or those who want to develop their palates in an educational, nonjudgmental and relaxing setting.
Those interested in the production process can schedule a guided tour of Moshin’s four-tier, gravity-flow winery. The structural design of the production system, from crush pad to bottling line, ensures the grapes are handled delicately and spur-of-the-moment needs are met. Private seated tastings are now available by appointment.
At the end of it all, sit back and enjoy the true fruits of their labor in their excellent wines.
Rick Moshin farms his 28 acres of estate vineyards himself and has had a hand in nearly every aspect of the construction and maintenance of the winery.Moshin’s first vintage was in 1989, sixteen years before opening the tasting room.
