Radio-Coteau

Sonoma, Anderson Valley, California, USA

Radio-Coteau Forestville, Sonoma County, CA Radio-Coteau (ra´de o ko to´ - literally, “broadcasting from the hillside”) is a colloquial expression meaning “word of mouth.” Winegrower Eric Sussman first heard the phrase from a friend while living and working in Burgundy. More than a preference for how you discover these wines, the name reflects a commitment to capturing reflections of soil, seasons, people, and place. His philosophy highlights this idea, as he has selected cool-climate coastal vineyard sites in Western Sonoma County and Anderson Valley. His goal is to offer wines with vibrant, balanced fruit and a distinct sense of place. To craft unique expressions of sites and seasons, he and his winemaking team focus on detailed and sustainable viticulture in conjunction with a natural, non-interventionist approach in the cellar. They actively collaborate with their growers to enhance the character of each site by promoting vine balance and healthy soil. Allowing the wine to evolve naturally during vinification and elevage preserves the integrity of the vineyard and the vintage.
