HISTORY 

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.                

 
     
  WINE MAKING
Growing conditions in Annapolis are unique to Sonoma County :  an elevation of about 1000ft, five and a half miles from the Pacific Ocean , cool coastal breezes, sandy low-vigor soils, and abundant sunshine.  From vine to bottle, we do everything we can to stay out of the way, and let the wine grow.
 
     
  PHILOSOPHY
Less Is More! Our aim is to allow the grapes flavors to develop naturally, with as little intervention as possible. We practice sustainable farming techniques.  No synthetic pesticides are used.  All of our fruit is hand picked and carefully inspected.  No fining agents are used. Personal care and attention go into every bottle. What you taste in the bottle is what is grown in the fields.  All our wines are made from locally grown wine grapes.  Our mission statement:  "To Use Local Fruit and Provide our Customers with the Essence of The Sonoma North Coast."
