Uvaggio is the result of two guys who represent a triple threat: too much experience, a low threshold for boredom and a desire to do something unique, which is why we make wines in California with grape varieties indigenous to Italy.  In the past we have made Arneis, Nebbiolo, Sangiovese, even a Vin Santo.  Our current portfolio includes Barbera, Moscato, Primitivo and Vermentino.  Our theory is simple: if California has a climate perfect for growing Mediterranean varietals, why not take advantage of it? Based on our theory - if we grow the right grape in the right place, we can manage to get by with our respective degrees in psychology and geography.  (If one of us gets lost then other can figure out why.)  However, when you grow grapes in the wrong place, you probably need a Master's Degree from UC Davis to make the wine taste good (if you are lucky).  We think we have found the right places in Lodi for growing our grapes and urge you to discover this for yourself Read more »

  • Uvaggio Rosato 2014

    Snoothrank:

    The wine is a lovely vivid pink color in the glass. The nose expresses lovely notes of cherry, plum and rose petals. The taste is quite unexpected, with some bright berry notes up front that yield to tart cherry and some mineral notes of iron midpalate. The finish is quite nice but not particularly long, but quite dry. I'll admit that based ... Read More

  • Uvaggio Rosato 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Refreshing and slightly dry. This is how I like "ROSE".Uvaggio is a California wine and does not use Italian grapes. How can it be called ROSATO? Read More

    Wine review by mark


  • Uvaggio Vermentino 2011

    Snoothrank:

    The nose was fresh yet rich with seaside air, citrus, green olive and herbal tones. On the palate, ripe green apple with a citrus twinge kept it fresh and lively against medium-weight, almost oily textures. The finish was crisp with brisk acidity and lime lingering on the palate.

  • Uvaggio Vermentino 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Rare to see this variety coming out of California but a good representation. Aromatic from the start with a wonderful floral nose that is very inviting. Light bodied with a palate of jasmine with very floral characteristics to the finish. Hints of lime, green apple, and a delightful minerality that makes this quite refreshing. Wonderfully paired...

  • Uvaggio Vermentino 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Green herbal notes on the nose. Pretty, floral fresh aromas with some salinity and minerality. Brisk acid on the palate and mineral driven. Lots of fresh produce and green herbs. Some hints of salinity. Definitely a food friendly wine. Stony pear and quince flavors. 87 pts.5/1/13 Read More

    Wine review by VegasOenophile


  • Uvaggio Vermentino 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Light yellow color and for the bouquet I pick up some peach and apple. On the palate this wine is acidic and crisp coupled with tart apple and a hint of lemon with a slight peppery note. The finish was short but pleasant. Enjoyable Read More

  • Uvaggio Vermentino Lodi 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Rather lightly aromatic with nice notes of lemon, a touch of peach and then big chalky and mint top notes. Bright on entry, this is rather small-scaled in the mouth but shows nice depth of flavor. Fruit-driven in the Vermentino way, which is to say not terribly, and showing as much mineral and suggestions of fines herbs over pineapple and green ... Read More

  • Uvaggio Vermentino Lodi 2010

    Snoothrank:

    I got this my first time at WineSteals, a local wine store. There were little bubbles at bottom of glass when i poured this. Mineral nose with a floral note. Medium bodied, this had a refreshing bite of acid and a bitter soapy note. Lightly spiced, this had good notes of apple and residual sugar. The finish lingers like i just finished a green a...
