  To Don Sebastiani and Sons, family is clearly an important aspect of winemaking. While Don Sebastiani and Sons wasn’t founded until 2001, Samuele Sebastiani created a winery in 1904, and started growing the company, as well as the town of Sonoma. Over the years, the winery changed hands many times, but it always stayed within the family. By 2000, the winery was producing eight million cases of wine a year. However, at that time, Don Sebastiani sold many of the assets and kept only the family brand and the Sonoma winery and vineyards. Though he stepped down as CEO and Chairman in 2000, that wasn’t the end for him. In 2001, he and his sons, Donny and August, founded Don Sebastiani and Sons, eventually growing production back up to two million cases annually. Today, Greg Kitchens and Michelle McClendon, winemakers for Don Sebastiani and Sons, strive to produce high-end wine at affordable prices. They don’t just source grapes from California - they’ve also formed partnerships to create Australian and Chilean blends, further expanding the company’s reach and complexity. Read less

The toasty, cedary notes have a drying edge, with dried berry and cranberry flavors accented by plenty of spice. Drink now.

pours a light ruby in the glass. The nose is bright with aromas of cherries, strawberries, and cola. The palate is light and full of fruit. Sweet tastes of plum, cherry, and vanilla are followed with lingering notes of strawberry. The wine is bala

This shows simple, candied raspberry and cherry flavors, with a nice spiciness. The mouthfeel is creamy and silky.
