Sogno Winery:
In the picturesque hills of the Sierra Nevada rests a winery destined to create some of the finest wines the region has to offer, Sogno (sewn-yo). Italian for dream, this winery truly is a dream come true for the Davis family.

In the picturesque hills of the Sierra Nevada rests a winery destined to create some of the finest wines the region has to offer, Sogno (sewn-yo). Italian for dream, this winery truly is a dream come true for the Davis family. In 1998, Richard, Jackie, Eric and Summer purchased the land and the original Hodgkins homestead dating back to the 1880s. Long used for farming and gold mining, if you walk down by the creek you can still see remnants of the prospecting equipment long abandoned by those who sought their fortune. Today, the land is blanketed with rows of vines, evidence of a dream fulfilled. Pursuing our philosophy of hand-crafted, low input winemaking, at Sogno we believe the less we manipulate the wine, the more flavor and complexity you will enjoy in every glass. To accomplish this, we move wine by gravity whenever possible and allow the wine to mature in our unique underground storage cave, the perfect environment for slow, gentle, barrel aging. The result is wine that tempts the senses. Wine that can be enjoyed on its own or as the perfect accompaniment to any meal. Read less

Like the wine, subtle herb flavour is enjoyable. a lighter tasting wine. Not sure the $32 is worth it, but a good wine none the less. my wife liked it more than myself.

Outstanding with red meat, game and hard cheeses. The soil is rich in iron and trace quantities of carbonate, calcium and magnesium. These unique soils combine with an ideal microclimate to yield high quality nebbiolo grapes. Following traditional red fermentation, the wine isaged for one year in French oak barriques, followed by18 months in Slovenian oak casks and six months in bottle.
