Williams Selyem Winery Farms
Williams Selyem Winery—Drake Estate Vineyard
This 35-acre vineyard located adjacent to the Russian River in Guerneville was an apple orchard owned and farmed by Roscoe Drake for many decades. In 1999, William Selyem developed the site as a vineyard. Cover crops are used to protect soil and the vineyard manager works with adjacent residential neighbors to define sustainable practices acceptable to everyone. The property protects a wide swath of redwood and riparian forest along the river.
