Sangiacomo Family releases first estate wines
After 50 years of growing Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes for some of the finest wineries in California, the Sangiacomo family recently released its own estate vineyards wines.
This is a third-generation effort. Vittorio and Maria Sangiacomo bought a 52-acre fruit tree ranch in Sonoma in 1927, and the next generation of Angelo, Buck, Lorraine, and Bob Sangiacomo converted to premium grape vineyards in the late 1960s. The operation has grown to 1,600 estate acres (all 100 percent certified sustainable) in Sonoma and Napa counties.
Now the third generation — Steve and Mike Sangiacomo and Mia Sangiacomo Pucci — are crafting their own wines under the Sangiacomo label, primarily sold direct-to-consumer and to a select few restaurant accounts. They offer two limited signature appellation bottlings — Chardonnay Sonoma Coast and Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast — and four small lot single vineyard designate wines — Chardonnay Green Acres Vineyard Sonoma Coast, Chardonnay Home Ranch Carneros, Pinot Noir Roberts Road Vineyard Sonoma Coast, and Cabernet Sauvignon Oakview Vineyards Oakville Napa Valley.
