Williams Selyem Winery: Premium Wines, Breathtaking Architecture and Sustainability
March 21, 2017
Williams Selyem Winery began as a simple dream of two friends, Ed Selyem and Burt Williams, who started weekend winemaking as a hobby in 1979 in a garage in Forestville, California.
It took less than two decades from their first commercial vintage in 1981 for Burt and Ed to create a cult-status winery of international acclaim.
Together, they set a new standard for Pinot Noir winemaking in the United States, raising Sonoma County’s Russian River Valley to among the best winegrowing regions in the world.
The winery itself offers both extraordinary premium wines and breathtaking architecture. In addition they are committed to sustainability and have installed both solar thermal and solar electric panels to enhance their energy efficiency.
