2016 Carignan | Guido Venturi Vineyard

2016 Carignan | Guido Venturi Vineyard

Elisco and Laudomia Venturi purchased the Venturi Vineyard in 1924. This thirty-acre vineyard is hillside.  These two acres were planted on St.George rootstock and dry farmed, in soil that is clay at the top of the hill turming gradually into a rich loam at the bottom. Planted by Guido himself, he is one of the original Mendocino County Grapes Growers along with John Parducci and Charles Barra. His son Gary, who does a terrific job, now farms the vineyard. Gary insisted the vineyard designation carry his father's name (Guido). We  are proud and lucky to have sourced and highlight from truly a historic figure in Mendocino County, grown in the small hamlet of Calpella (the name of a northern Pomo Indian chief), north of Ukiah and west of the Redwood Valley Appellation. primarily flat land and gentle slope with the exception of a little over two acres on a north-facing

We have ordered from RVV since 2010. This is the first time we have tried this wine. What a pleasant surprise. It is now one of our family favorites.
