The Winery


Riverain was founded by several friends who originally connected in Orange County through the world of wine, Steve Nordhoff (founding attorney of Nordhoff Bengfort, a Newport Beach-based legal firm) and Dean Gray (worked in the field of consumer packaging, initially for Proctor and Gamble) and Dean’s wife Laurie (who captured the lovely photographs for some of the Riverain labels). Their inaugural vintage was in 2011 – merely two wines, a Cabernet Sauvignon from Tench Vineyard in Oakville and a Syrah from the Cardiac Hill Vineyard in Bennett Valley (neighboring Sonoma County). Production has grown slowly over the years, but still remains small (a typical vintage is around 500 to 600 cases in total) and in addition to their Cabernet Sauvignon has evolved to also include a Sauvignon Blanc and a Pinot Noir.
