Proprietor Grown. Uncompromising Quality.
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.
