PinotFile: The Martinelli family... began producing Pinot Noir under their own label in 1993, with Helen Turley as the winemaker... Over time, older vineyards have been transitioned to high-density plantings... The Pinot Noirs are bold, fruit-driven and highly structured wines.
Since 1896, five generations of the Martinelli family have worked together producing apples and wine in Sonoma County. We invite you to stop by the Martinelli Vineyards Tasting room in our historic Hop Barn to try our award winning estate wines.
