terrific small bottle of port from the continental United States. What a steal at under $15. Perfect for warming you up on those long winter nights.

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. John Pedroncelli began his winemaking career as a child working side by side with his father, John Sr. learning from the ground up. After World War II and his service in the US Coast Guard, he graduated from Santa Rosa Junior College and then attended many winemaking classes at University of California at Davis. John’s style is Pedroncelli’s style—wines that are flavorful and balanced to reflect the region’s characteristics—he allows the wines to speak for themselves. As a family winery who has farmed for 80 years in the Dry Creek Valley, we want the next generations to be able to continue farming in an environmentally sensitive way. The most important statement we can make about our wine is that we are here for the long term and protecting the environment is one way we will achieve that goal. At Pedroncelli Winery, we practice sustainable winegrowing and, over the years, we have been reducing water use, building healthy soil, and protecting the vineyard environment. This is a comprehensive approach to vineyard management that involves all aspects of farming including human resources, viticulture, soil management, water management, pest management, habitat management, and wine quality. Tasting Room Our tasting room is open 10am to 4:30pm daily, except major holidays. Read less

Opens with a chemical nose. This is fairly light for a port, and has surprisingly low sugar. 20% alcohol. Notes of blueberry, although its hot. Finishes on notes of bitter chocolate powder.

Wine Tasting NotesPretty purple color with slight brick-toned edge. Aromas of dried fig, toffee and soy. Very fruity in the mouth - grapey, raspberry and cream soda. Hints of mocha, chocolate and vanilla spice round out the flavors. Very complex and rich. This port will gain nuances into 2025 and should be enjoyed with great reward.
