The History of Sciandri Family Vineyards
The Sciandri Family arrived in Napa in 1992, purchasing 20 acres of untouched pasture, begging to be planted. So, it was not long before we planted our first Cabernet Sauvignon field and started our adventure in wine. Our family winemaking roots can be traced back to the small town of La Quercia, located in the Northern Tuscany region of Italy. It is here where our ancestors have been making wine for generations and inspired us to continue in that tradition. Aiming for a convergence of family and wine our label tells a story of history and generations. The leaf pays tribute to the town, Quercia, which translates to “oak” in Italian. Each grape on the logo cluster represents a member of the family, while the dual triangle pattern and blue color scheme were inspired by the town flag of Quercia. We hope our wines inspires you to gather with family and friends to raise a glass to love and life.
As a family we strive to operate our winery with some of those same Old World values as the many generations before us. We are proud to farm and source all of our fruit from the Coombsville AVA (American Viticultural Area) of Napa Valley. Coombsville is the 16th, and one of Napa Valley’s newest sub appellations.
Starting out as growers, we were honored to provide fruit to some of the most prestigious wine makers in the valley. It was after many years of enjoying the fruits of our labor in others’ wines that we made the family decision to start our own production.
In 2006 we launched Sciandri Family Vineyards. Our first wine was an Estate Grown Cabernet Sauvignon. We have since grown our portfolio to offer our Coombsville Cuvee, a Rose, a Sauvignon Blanc, and a special 4 barrel production of a wine called “Nello“. Named in honor of Ron Sr’s father, who taught us about gardening, farming, and all the importance of being good stewards of the land.
To that end, the 4+ acre vineyard on it’s 20 acre estate is allied with the Napa Green Certified Land Program, which includes a certification for Fish Friendly Farming. The family focuses on sustainable practices related to soil, drainage, wildlife and more.
As with all family businesses it is always all hands on deck. Hope to see you soon at the vineyard! Salute
