Pescatore Vineyard & Winery

Why the name Pescatore? Meaning fisherman in Italian, fishing is Dave's hobby when he's not busy with the vineyard or winery. In addition, it is Patty's immigrant Grandma's maiden name. Nicolina Pescatore immigrated from Naples in the early 1900's. Grandma always made her own wine. She even kept a carafe of wine in her refrigerator!

Our boutique winery produces only about 800 cases of wine a year. We tend each vine ourselves and the grapes are pressed manually in a traditional wooden basket press.

Our Estate wines include Barbera, Syrah, Zinfandel, Petite Sirah, and Sauvignon Blanc.

Pescatore wines have won several awards including:

  • Barbera - Gold - Best of Appellation Competition
  • Petite Sirah - Gold- San Francisco Chronicle Competition
  • Syrah - Bronze - California State Fair Micro Winery Competition
  • Syrah - Bronze - San Francisco Chronicle Competition
  • Malbec - Bronze - San Francisco Chronicle Competition
  • Petite Sirah - Silver - California State Fair
    Malbec - Silver - San Francisco Chronicle Competition.

Pescatore is truly a family affair. The whole family works together with Dave & Patty. You can find their sons Tim and Steve, their wives Misti & Noelle, and even the grandkids helping out!

We always have fun on our friends and family harvest day! Come visit us!
