They purchased the historic Parducci Wine Cellars with a shared vision to build upon the tradition and quality of the Parducci brand, with wines inspired by (and essentially connected to) Mendocino County, the place and its people. Tom, Tim and Paul are driven by three mandates, in their lives and in business together: Respect for the environment, sustaining community and family, and a creative approach to business. The family farmers who own Parducci and grow its grapes have taken a stand. We're doing the right things to make delicious wine, and the right things to make a healthier planet.
