Making great wine is a new tradition for our family, and it’s our great pleasure to share these wines with you.
For over 50 years, our family has been committed to growing some of the finest grapes in Sonoma County. And beginning with the 2016 vintage, we are proud to introduce a series of wines that showcase our own artistic expression of these vineyards. As third generation farmers, we are committed to honoring our family’s rich history in agriculture while creating a legacy for the next generation of the Sangiacomo family.
We have carefully selected special vineyard sites in Carneros, Petaluma Gap and Sonoma Coast for their unique terroir, microclimate, and vine heritage. Working in partnership with our winemaker James MacPhail, our approach begins with an uncompromising pursuit to create intense and balanced wines that reflect true varietal character and site-driven quality. We produce four Chardonnays and three Pinot Noirs from our vineyards in Sonoma County as well as a Cabernet Sauvignon from Oakville, Napa Valley. Each of our wines is made available one time each year, either in the spring or in the fall, and offered by allocation to our Mailing List.
“We love what we do, and will now have the opportunity to share our new wines at the table. These are special vineyard sites that are near and dear to our heart, and we understand the responsibility of shepherding these grapes to glass. We’re excited to see where we can take these vineyards and wines into the future.” – Mike Sangiacomo

For decades our family has been dedicated to farming in Sonoma County. We are grapegrowers with a passion for sustainability and stewardship. For three generations, year by year we have gathered knowledge and continue to pursue perfection in farming each and every row of our vineyards. Through research, trial and error in the field, and critical evaluation of the resulting wines, we have learned how to select the right varietals, clones and rootstocks, as well as row spacing and orientation for more than 100 individual sites. This approach, paired with the appropriate pruning, irrigation, canopy management, and nutrients is what enables us to tease an extraordinary range of flavors out of our Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes. At every step of the way we seek to produce the highest quality fruit with the lowest environmental impact possible
All of our primary vineyards are located in Sonoma County, with the majority near our home in Sonoma and smaller plantings in the nearby Petaluma Gap and Sonoma Coast region. We farm over 1600 acres of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay in fifteen different vineyards located in four American Viticultural Areas (AVAs): Carneros, Sonoma Coast, Petaluma Gap and Sonoma Valley. Additionally, we farm Cabernet Sauvignon in Oakville, Napa Valley.
The real magic happens in more than 100 individually farmed sites spread across our fifteen vineyards. For our Sangiacomo Family Wines, we’ve thoughtfully selected specific rows from our vineyards that best express the unique vineyard sites and appellations. We’ve taken an artisanal approach to farming and winemaking, allowing each vineyard block to tell a story of the microclimate and soil diversity.
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.
Our inspiration for Sangiacomo Wines is born from a pursuit to craft the very finest wines and honor our family heritage while creating a legacy for the next generation.
Drawing from our family history rooted deeply in farming and a genuine passion for grape growing, our wines showcase the very best of our estate vineyards. For over 50 years we have been committed to growing some of the finest grapes in Sonoma County, and we are proud to now introduce a series of wines that showcase our own artistic expression of our vineyards. We are inspired by legacy – an unwavering commitment to learn, grow and build value for the next generation.
