    I learned everything I could by doing it myself. I began as a tasting room manager, then moved into marketing and compliance. I learned about the mechanics of winemaking when I became a cellar rat, so I could work with barrels and wine, drive a forklift, manage a cellar and warehouse, help with harvest and crush. From there, I became an assistant winemaker, thus learning the finer techniques of winemaking. Selby Winery is the result of 13 years of hands-on labor: In its own facility with a library of award-winning wines and a coterie of supporters. From our very first vintage, which was 150 cases of 1993 Chardonnay, I've been doing what I love.
    .
    Winemaker Susie Selby
    The truth is, I love wine. I also love making wine. Those are my best qualifications as the winemaker for Selby Winery.
    My goal when I make Selby wines is to focus on the fruit; therefore I favor traditional minimalist principles of winemaking that yield elegant, sophisticated and accessible wines you can enjoy without lengthy cellaring.
    If it's possible to do it by hand, I do. I designed our winery to accommodate my handcrafted approach. We pick, ferment, process and even bottle by hand. On most of our lots, we use small, half-ton bins for extended maceration.
    We use carefully selected coopers for our French and American oak, as well as insulated stainless steel fermentation and blending tanks. Our press is an extraordinarily gentle Puleo from Italy. This is an important part of the process and we don't take shortcuts.
    On the other hand, timing is everything. Knowing when to harvest, how long to age, when to blend, when to bottle and when to release is more than science; it's an art that is based on experience and intuition.
    People don't often think of winemaking as a thrill-a-minute, fast-paced business. It is for me. As the winemaker, I'm in the thick of it, at all times. Winemaking is my life. So next time you visit Selby Winery, keep an eye out.
    I'll be the on the cell phone in the vineyards, taking sugars, arranging harvest, supervising crush, filling a barrel, assembling a blend or running the hand-bottler. Who knows? You might even find me on the forklift. Of course, if I'm lucky, I'll be in the tasting room, raising a glass with you.

    2006 Azevedo Cabernet Sauvignon
  • Appellation: Chalk Hill
  • Winemaker: Susie Selby
  • This limited production Cabernet Sauvignon comes from a unique and spectacular site in the famous Russian River Valley. Located in Northern California by the Pacific Ocean, the cool marine layer dramatically slows the ripening process thus making this the most challenging grape to grow in the Valley. The slower ripening process significantly increases the complexity of the fruit flavors while softening the tannins in the skin of the grapes. After the grapes are carefully hand-picked into small b... ...read more

    2006 Malbec
  • Appellation: Chalk Hill
  • Winemaker: Susie Selby
  • Aged in oak for eighteen months in the finest French oak barrels, this Bordeaux varietal is smooth and deep and dark with rich, spicy, complex boysenberry and rasberry flavors. The aromatic is chocolate - the finish deliciously divine! A medium bodied wine that is terrific on its own or anything off the grill.

    2007 Pinot Noir
  • Appellation: Russian River Valley
  • Winemaker: Susie Selby
  • Pinot Noir is the most elegant wine produced in California and Russian River Valley is the superior appellation for Pinot Noir production. Exceptional French clones were planted on rolling hills along the Russian River, where the sun kisses the grapes each morning, and the thick oceanic fog hugs them each night.

    2008 Calegari Pinot Noir
  • Appellation: Russian River Valley
  • Winemaker: Susie Selby
  • The Calegari family has lived in Healdsburg for over 30 years, with vineyards on the west-facing slopes above the Russian River. Years ago, their winemaking efforts began with a modest two rows of grapes and a wine barrel in their barn. Today, their 40-acre property produces some of the most prized Pinot Noir grapes in the Russian River Valley. At Selby Winery, we are proud to place their family name on our label.

    2007 Syrah
  • Appellation: Sonoma County
  • Winemaker: Susie Selby
  • It's the best of all worlds when it comes to red wine: It's spicy, smoky, toasty, fruity, heady and enthralling. It goes with the food I love, as well as on its own. I'm not sure there's anything better than a big glass of Syrah, a slice of Cambazola cheese, a baguette and a great book. (Except maybe a second glass of Syrah.) I make Syrah in the classic Côte Rôtie style. I add judicious amounts of Viognier (the famous delicate white grape of the Rhone region) give the blend more floral aroma... ...read more

    2008 Bobcat Zinfandel
  • Appellation: Sonoma County
  • Winemaker: Susie Selby
  • Bobcat Zinfandel is made in a non-traditional voluptuous winemaking style. The grapes are picked at maximum sugar levels to attain the most extreme concentratison possible. Rich flavors, a hint of sweetness and high alcohol content makes this the most intense wine from Selby. Are you surprised it is the most popular? Savor the flavor of the elusive Bobcat before he is gone for another year.

    2008 Dave Selby Reserve Chardonnay
  • Appellation: Russian River Valley
  • Winemaker: Susie Selby
  • Dave Selby Reserve Chardonnay is only produced when everything about the vintage and the vineyard is flawless. The grapes were picked at ideal levels of acidity and flavor, then the free run juice was put into our finest new French barrels. Gentle stirring for 15 months and hand bottling completed the process.

    2008 Selby Chardonnay
  • Appellation: Russian River Valley
  • Winemaker: Susie Selby
  • My favorite white wine is Chardonnay. I feel fortunate to make our Chardonnay with grapes from the best vineyards in Russian River Valley - just one of the reasons it is award-winning. If you love supple, ripe, elegant Chardonnay imbued with subtle notes of toasty oak, this one is outstanding.

    2009 Selby Sauvignon Blanc
  • Appellation: Sonoma County
  • Winemaker: Susie Selby
  • The beauty of stainless steel fermented Sauvignon Blanc is that it can pair wonderfully with all kinds of food or stand on it's own because it is so approachable. But the trick is to make it interesting by extracting its concentrated flavors and balancing them with a crisp clean finish. The final touch? A delicate kiss of Semillon.
