Roederer Estate, founded in 1982 by Jean-Claude Rouzaud, then president of the parent company Champagne Louis Roederer, is a well-known California winery. It produces estate-bottled sparkling wines from Mendocino County's cool, fog-shrouded Anderson Valley. As the California outpost of Champagne Louis Roederer, Roederer Estate winery builds upon a centuries-old tradition of fine winemaking; it is considered one of the top sparkling wineries in the United States.[1]

Roederer Estate's sparkling wines are produced using estate-grown grapes exclusively from the winery's own 580-acre (230 ha)[2] vineyard and special oak-aged reserve wines are added to each blend.[3] The winery produces four sparkling wines: the multi-vintage Roederer Estate Anderson Valley Brut, debuted in 1988, the Brut Rosé and Roederer Estate's vintage têtes de cuvée, L'Ermitage and L'Ermitage Rosé. All distribution for Roederer Estate is managed by the company Maisons Marques & Domaines.
