My grandfather, Anthony Sr., started his wine career in 1940, selling gallon jugs of his father’s homemade red wine from a pushcart in their Brooklyn neighborhood. Twenty-three years later he moved the family to California, just in time for the 1963 harvest. He bought a winery about 40 miles from San Francisco where his sons learned to make wine.
We will always remember Sunday night dinners at his winery home, when he passed along the family history, values and winemaking standards. He also handed down two names that appear throughout our family tree: Anthony & Dominic. Our wines, including this new Russian River Chardonnay, are a tribute to the family members that carried our names before us.
Our Russian River Chardonnay has bright, crisp citrus flavors and ideal acidity. The finish is subtle and creamy with a hint of vanilla bean.
The Napa Valley Pinot Noir is the first Pinot Noir in five generations to carry our family’s names. The flavor profile is fruit driven with berry and spice accents, a medium body, soft tannins and a satisfying finish.
