Petals Flourishing Among the Grapes

Russian River Rose

Jan Tolmasoff—proprietress of the Russian River Rose Company, in Healdsburg, California—rises before dawn to admire her prized blossoms. At daybreak, the horticulturist begins tending the more than 650 varieties of heirloom roses that grow throughout Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay grapevines, as well as an additional eight hundred plants that blanket fields of perfume roses. These quiet hours provide treasured moments of introspection. Jan says she is often reminded that small steps can lead to grand results when carried out faithfully over time.
