Pedroncelli Winery

Premier Winery Experience participant 

Now in its 90th year, historic family-run winemaking, farming cred and bang for your wine buck doesn’t get any better in Sonoma County than at Pedroncelli Winery, where the Pedroncelli family has been farming and making great wines and memories from estate vineyards and other Sonoma County vineyards for three generations.

Founded by John Pedroncelli in 1927 and today operated by three Pedroncelli sisters (and a woman winemaker, Montse Reece) the Pedroncelli winery stands as a testament to strength of family, and perseverance. Pedroncelli’s time honored winning formula is consistent approachable style, quality, and excellent values among several varietals – whites and reds. Sustainable practices, old vines and vineyards that are faithfully propagated from the family’s revered mother clone are at the heart of Pedroncelli’s Zinfandels.

Visitors to the original winery’s tasting room and patios gain an immediate sense of history, quality and family pride among the surrounding hillside beauty of the Dry Creek AVA. Tastings are offered at the bar and tableside. Vineyard walks to the rows of estate vines adjacent to the winery are offered every day and typically are hosted by the congenial co-owner Julie Pedroncelli. A prolific wine writer and wine educator, check out Julie’s regular newsletter “Vino in my Dino” – a reference to her drinking cup from the Flintstones era.

Retail sales, enhanced food-paired tastings, wine clubs are available and picnic boxes can be arranged with advance notice. Your family pooch will be a welcome guest at Pedroncelli!
