3 things you gotta know about Porter-Bass from Sue Porter, the founder of the estate herself:
Porter-Bass is a real old property, with the original zin grapes planted in early 1900s.
(My husband and I) came to the Russian River in the 80s and felt we had to save this property. We started with Chardonnay and saved some zin. Pinot happened in the 90s.
The estate is coastal -- only 8 miles from the ocean.
