TOFANELLI FAMILY VINEYARDS

OUR  WINEMAKING  PHILOSOPHY

California extraction - European elegance

All my life I have enjoyed wine with meals. Even as a child, my Italian grandfather would pour a little vino in my water glass at the lunch table. That early introduction, and later education as a winemaker (and wine drinker), has guided my hands to craft wines that  pair well with food.

In the Napa Valley we enjoy a climate that can give our wines incredible concentration (and if we're not careful, a one dimensional simplicity). My goal as winemaker is to bring a little restraint to the ‘table’ - to give you wines that not only taste good now but will complement your meals and age gracefully.

That being said, our wines show the best of two worlds; the extraction of intense flavors we all love with a layered  complexity that speaks of old world influence. 

So, open the screen door, come into the kitchen and enjoy a glass of Tofanelli wine!

Salute per Tutti
