Due to the seasonal nature and limited availability of Road 31, as well as the ephemeral nature of restaurant wine programs, this is a partial and constantly-changing list. Please check with the establishment to be sure they have Road 31 in stock. And if they don't, go eat there anyway, as they are all great places. And, just be sure to order some winery's Pinot Noir, as there is no better wine with food.

In the Spring, Road 31
Pinot Noir is first offered to the
“truckers” (mail list).


"Supple, seamless, sexy and pure style. Kirsch, black raspberries, spice box, dried flowers and incense notes all emerge from this fresh, balanced, silky [2017] wine that's ideal for drinking over the coming 5-6 years. 93 pts." --Jeb Dunnuck

"The 2016... is a forward, incredible charming effort that offers impressive amounts of kirsch and blackberry fruits to go with notes of spring flowers, moderate tannins, and a silky, elegant, weightless texture. I love its balance. 92 pts." --Jeb Dunnuck

"The 2015 Pinot Noir is slightly darker and richer than the 2014 and gives up plenty of currant and mulberry fruit, notes of spring flowers and forest floor, medium- bodied richness, terrific balance, and a structured, age-worthy style that should benefit from short-term cellaring. 92+ pts."--Jeb Dunnuck

"This [2014] silky, elegant, seamless Pinot Noir has no hard edges and stays light and graceful on the palate. 92 pts."--Jeb Dunnuck

"Each year, Fortner and his green 1966 Ford pickup have turned out a tiny batch—500 to 700 cases—of Pinot Noir that has garnered accolades and a mailing list of rabid fans, endearingly called 'truckers.' His one-man operation is the epitome of specialty small-batch winemaking."--Men's Journal, "Napa's New Breed."

"Toasty oak, good structure and balance; Complex, interesting flavors mark this Pinot -- it's great. 92 pts."–The Pinot Report.

"Road 31's 2011 Pinot Noir impresses for its delicate, understated personality. This is an absolutely goregous wine, especially in the context of a vintage that was full of challenges."--Robert Parker's Wine Advocate.

"This wine walks the walk (or should I say rides the road). The pretty ruby color draws you in. The sexy nose offers up dark cherries, roses, nutmeg, and toasty oak. Flavors of cherries, cinnamon and vanilla are luscious enough to nibble on. The wine finishes with a sexy candied cherry kiss that lingers. A beautifully balanced wine with sensual creaminess that only Pinot Noir can offer."--Pinotfile Newsletter, Dec 2006

"Delicious Pinots from Road 31 and proprietor Kent Fortner. The Road 31 Pinots are aged partly in Hungarian oak, which adds a distinctive layer of spiciness."--Robert Parker's Wine Advocate.
