Williams Selyem Winery, Healdsburg

4.4
#33 of 67 in Wineries in Healdsburg
Williams Selyem Winery began as a simple dream of two friends, Ed Selyem and Burt Williams, who pursued weekend winemaking as a hobby in 1979 in a garage in Forestville, California, and made their first commercial vintage in 1981. In less than two decades, Burt and Ed created a cult-status winery of international acclaim. Together they set a new standard for Pinot Noir winemaking in the United States, aligning Sonoma County's Russian River Valley in the firmament of the best winegrowing regions of the world.

Today, the winery and winemaker Bob Cabral carefully executes the Williams Selyem philosophy of "respecting the juice." From fermentation to bottling, including the no pumping and filter-free methods, the winemakers use these processes to ensure that the quality of the wine is not compromised.

    Invited in this beautiful area, I was very impressed by the reception of the customers and the competence of a sommelier who introduced us to taste a range of varied, very nice wine in the mouth (notes of red fruit, particularly cherries...). This visit left us all a very nice memory.
