In 1927, Giovanni and Julia Pedroncelli purchased the hillside property west of Geyserville, which included 25 acres of Zinfandel vines and a former winery building that had been used as a barn during Prohibition.

This majestic property has been in the Pedroncelli family for generations, and today it is run by the third and fourth generation. Two elements remain unchanged: the exceptional place the Pedroncelli family farms vineyards, and the family’s dedication to making fine wines. Visitors have the opportunity to taste the epitome of winemaking and learn about the history of the Pedroncelli family.

“One of the old, iconic Italian families of Sonoma, the Pedroncellis have been farming vineyards since 1927. They obviously survived Prohibition and consumers are all the better for it. Moreover, they have always had a humble philosophy in terms of pricing. Dollar-for-dollar, the Pedroncelli wines consistently offer both character and quality for their prices, something consumers should never forget.” -Robert Parker
