... Vino in My Dino

Vino in my Dino

Julie 3-31-15The name Vino in my Dino comes from my earliest memory of wine at our dining room table when I was 4 years old. I had my Flintstones tableware along with my Dino cup-my parents would pour a tiny bit of Zinfandel and then add water. I asked them why they put water in my vino-it just didn’t taste good. I have been passionate about wine ever since.

I am a third generation family member/owner of Pedroncelli Winery and the office I inhabit is my childhood bedroom. I have the good fortune to look out on the same vineyard view as I have for some five decades. And I never tire of what I see. My husband Ed calls this Pedroncelli World Headquarters. I call it home. Growing up at the winery gave me life experiences I still appreciate. Agriculture, sales, marketing, weather, climate, land purchases, sunsets (a family favorite) and Sunday dinners.

I hope you’ll stop by often and appreciate my view of the wine world and together we’ll sip some Vino in my Dino.

New Zin on the Block

Replanting is quite a project when a block of vineyard has aged out (low production) or become too virused to farm economically. The latter happened to our Petite Sirah on the Home Ranch and here is the story behind the new vineyard now taking shape.

Travel kills the blogposts

With four weeks of travel and Passport to Dry Creek Valley weekend I have come to the conclusion it is not possible to post my thoughts until my return the week of May 16. I'll leave you with a photo of Dirk while on one of our vineyard walks earlier this month.
