KEY BRAND POINTS Mossback is an old fashioned term for farmer. The Giguiere family has a long history of farming and for the Mossback brand we have sought fruit from some of the most renowned farmers in the Russian River Valley. The name also conjures up images of the mossy rocks, tree trunks and end posts that are so prevalent in the cool Russian River Valley.
