Pedroncelli of Dry Creek, with National Sales Rep, Julie Pedroncelli

Since 1927, when John Pedroncelli, Sr. purchased vineyard and a small winery in Sonoma County's Dry Creek Valley,

two elements remain unchanged: the exceptional place the Pedroncelli family farms vineyards, and the family's

dedication to making fine wines. From selling grapes to home winemakers during prohibition in order to keep the

vineyards going, to growing a small base of business during the 1930s and 1940s, to the second generation joining

their father: son John becoming winemaker in 1948 followed by Jim in 1955 as sales director, to 1963 when the

winery was officially purchased by John and Jim from their father, to growing the line of wines in the 1960s with

vineyard expansion and diversification, to the boom time of the 1970s and 1980s along with many changes and

additions to our sales base including national sales and export, the third generation coming on board and vineyard

replanting in the 1990s to the 21st century refining our focus to restaurants and casual dining/meet-up wine bars and

independent wine shops across the nation. to the transfer of ownership of the company to the third generation (now a

70% woman owned company with a woman winemaker!) to the second decade in the new millenium where the fourth

generation is coming up the ranks... Nine decades strong, we are still family owned and operated. It all adds up to

tradition, heritage and a family of wines you can enjoy with confidence.
