Willamette Valley’s 50th Anniversary: A New Look at the Old Guard Pinot Briefs
Bush-Field Estate Vineyards and Winery is located among 129 acres of sprawling hills spotted with California oak trees and other native brush. A 2.5-acre lake on the estate is a favorite site for spotting blue herons, egrets and migratory geese. Situated in the Sonoma Valley AVA, the vineyard is the highest in Sonoma County, some 2359 feet above sea level and high enough for an occasional drop of snow. 5 acres of Pinot Noir were planted in 1999 on this magnificent site above Jack London State Park in Sonoma County.
Proprietor Alan Benfield Bush is a successful businessman who was managing director of hair stylist education at Vidal Sasson and later founder of the ABBA Pure and Natural Hair Care line. He is a noted motivational speaker and product innovator in the fashion and beauty industry. In 1997, he sold his product line and bought his ranch, following his dream of owning a vineyard that began at the age of 19.
