E16 Winery


Russian River Valley - Martaella Vineyard

The 1880 designation acknowledges the year grapevines were first planted in the village of Trenton. The town center and general store are long gone, but Trenton is very much alive within the hearts and minds of the local community and grape growers along the Russian River.

Also called “Trenton Station,” the picturesque area is situated at the northern end of Laguna Ridge and about eight miles east of where the river empties into the cold Pacific Ocean. Morning and afternoon fog are frequent visitors in a climate dominated by the cooling properties of the ocean and river, ensuring the development of beneficial grape acidity.

The signature Goldridge soils — dark yellow, fine sandy-loams over fractured sandstone — control vine vigor so that photosynthesis is directed at grape development versus excessive shoot growth.
