Stuhlmuller Vineyard Estate was established over 30 years ago and is nestled in a unique river bench and hillside location on the southwestern edge of the Alexander Valley, where three of Northern Sonoma County's top appellations come together. There, virtually a stone's throw from Chalk Hill and the Russian River Valley, the vineyard's ancient soils and perfect microclimate provide the ideal environment for growing exceptional Chardonnay.
Fritz Stuhlmuller graduated from the University of Southern California in 1994 with a degree in business administration. Sensing an ideal opportunity to combine his family's reputation as top grape growers with his own passion for fine wine upon his return to the Bay Area, Fritz established the estate winery bearing the Stuhlmuller name 17 years ago.

Our Vineyard is located seventeen miles from the Pacific Ocean at the western edge of the Dry Creek Valley in Sonoma County. Fourteen different grape varietals are grown on our 80-acre estate, across elevations ranging from low benchland to mountaintop blocks. The distinct climate and terroir of the estate contribute to the character of each varietal and provide a wonderful palette of flavors from which we are able to craft exceptional wines.
