Russian River Brewing Company Vinnie Cilurzo brewed Russian River Brewing Company’s first batch of beer on May 1, 1997, on the historic property of Korbel Champagne Cellars in Guerneville, California. In 2002, Korbel decided to consolidate some of its businesses and Vinnie and his wife, Natalie, acquired the brand name and logo. A used 30-barrel system was installed in downtown Santa Rosa, California, just 12 miles from the brewery’s current location. The revived Russian River brewed its first beers in 2004.
