After living in Marin County , The Scalabrini’s moved to Annapolis in 1976. The vineyards were planted in 1978, replacing an old apple orchard. After farming for several years, Basil Scalabrini began making wine commercially. With no winery, the first wine was made in a redwood grove at the top of the hill, a 1986 Cabernet Sauvignon… It was great! We built the winery in 1987, and began making wine from each vintage thereafter. We are family owned and operated, and are involved in every phase of the wine growing process. From pruning to bottling, we take personal pride in producing the best wine we possibly can. Our focus is on quality, not quantity. We produce a very small amount of wine, taking personal care at each step of the process. The results are wines that are naturally lush and intense.
