Our Farming Heritage
Farming is in our blood. As third generation farmers in Sonoma, we grew up on the ranch learning stewardship and sustainability from our parents and grandparents. Our first grapevines were planted in 1969, and for nearly fifty years we continue to honor our family’s tradition of growing premium grapes from our estate vineyards in Carneros, Napa and along the Sonoma Coast. As a family business we enjoy working together as a team, with two generations working side-by-side each and every day.
“While farming is at the heart of my family, it is exciting to start making something from the fruits of our labor. I believe that creating this wine is like creating a history book for our future generations. It encompasses the story of how our family has evolved, while still honoring the legacy of our past.” – Mia Sangiacomo Pucci
Our family has always felt a deep connection to the land — most especially through farming. It all began in Genoa, Italy where a good day’s work for our grandfather Vittorio Sangiacomo started and ended in the field. He voyaged to America in 1913 on the advice of our great grandfather and got his first job at age 17 in the vegetable fields at Bay Farm Island in Alameda County, California. Shortly thereafter he began working in the scavenger industry in San Francisco where he later successfully launched his own business. But he longed to return to working the land and in 1927, he purchased a 52-acre fruit tree ranch in Sonoma Valley. Today, we call that the Home Ranch.
