Vineyard Sources
Dry Creek Valley has a great pedigree for growing and developing great fruit characteristics as well as bright acidity in Sauvignon Blanc. We sourced three vineyards for this vintage: our estate vineyards as
well as two neighboring vineyards on the east side of Dry Creek. Each vineyard’s microclimate combines sun, soil and fog to retain ripe fruit and crisp flavor. Add these components to the special care and attention from the vineyard crew and the resulting wine is a wonderful reflection of terroir—wherein the sum is greater than the parts.

Winemaking
Perfect growing conditions during the summer and drought conditions accelerated the ripening of the grapes and we began harvesting Sauvignon Blanc on August 20th. It brought excellent quality, high
intensity of aromas and balanced acids in the fruit. Once crushed and gently pressed into temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks the juice was cold-fermented at 55 degrees to slow fermentation and to retain delicate varietal nuances. The wine is bottled a few months after harvest without oak aging or malo-lactic fermentation. We continue to create this Sauvignon Blanc to capture freshness and showcase the luscious Dry Creek Valley fruit.

Tasting Notes
Aromatic with a bouquet of passion fruit, peach, and grassy notes. The fresh flavors are layered with lemongrass, green apple, and honey. Our Sauvignon Blanc is tart-sweet and quite refreshing with well-integrated acidity. Please enjoy upon release or within a year or two as no aging is required.

Since 1927, when John Pedroncelli, Sr. purchased vineyard and a small winery in Sonoma County’s Dry Creek Valley, two elements remain unchanged: the exceptional place the Pedroncelli family farms vineyards, and the family’s dedication to making fine wines.

  • From selling grapes to home winemakers during  prohibition in order to keep the vineyards going,
  • to growing a small base of business during the 1930s and 1940s,
  • to the second generation joining their father: son John becoming winemaker in 1948 followed by Jim in 1955 as sales director,
  • to 1963 when the winery was officially purchased by John and Jim from their father,
  • to growing the line of wines in the 1960s with vineyard expansion and diversification,
  • to the boom time of the 1970s and 1980s along with many changes and additions to our sales base including national sales and export,
  • the third generation coming on board and vineyard replanting in the 1990s
  • to the 21st century where the fourth generation is coming up the ranks…
    and it is still a family owned business.

It all adds up to tradition, heritage and a family of wines you can enjoy with confidence.
