250 Acres. 7 Varietals. A Passion for Great Wine


RIVINO is located on a 250-acre ranch that has been in the Jahnke family since 1993, when the majority of the property was planted with pears. Gordon Janhke began growing grapes here in the 1990s. His daughter, Suzanne Janke, worked with him in the vineyard in those early years with her toddler son at her side. RIVINO was launched in 2008 and the vineyard now produces seven different grape varietals: Chardonnay, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Viognier, Pinot Blanc, Syrah, and Sangiovese.  

RIVINO is a boutique winery. From the day harvest begins to when bottling is complete, we handle the grapes and juice in the most minimal and gentle manner possible. Before harvest, we explore the vineyard to find the sections that have a truly special character, then give daily focus to those grapes. This close attention allows us to harvest grapes at the exact right moment. We pick at daybreak, and the grapes’ journey is short (sometimes just a few hundred feet) to our winery. Then the great transformation begins!

Tasting Room Update

In accordance with the County code we are temporarily closed for tastings. However, we will continue offering wines for shipment, or pick-up at RIVINO Ranch following social distancing protocols. We will be offering curbside pickup as well, for those who want it.

For those who’d prefer to stay at home entirely, we’ll be offering one-penny case shipping and a 20% case discount on all of our wines! Wine Club members will receive an additional 10% off of cases on top of their standard discount – so 25% off for Brook members, 30% off for Eddy members, and 35% off for Whitewater members! Might be time to join

We are suspending our in-person Friday music events until further notice – but we are doing virtual Happy Hours with food to pickup and enjoy. The Boujee tent will be ready to spring back to life once this is past us, and we’ll announce it here and by email as soon as we know when that will be. Stay safe out there!
