... 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.
