Derbes wines are made by Cecile Lemerle-Derbes, originally from France's Champagne region. Before producing Derbes, Ceile made wines at Champagne Bollinger
, Champagne Jacquart, Schug Carneros, Korbel, and Golan Heights. More recently she was Director of Production at Opus One Winery
. The wines produced at Derbes include a Russian River Valley Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, as well as a Carneros Chardonnay. Lemerle-Derbes also makes a unique Russian River blend of Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier called "Les Pinots." The grapes are hand-harvested and sorted. The juice is inoculated with Champagne yeasts and aged in 100% French oak.
