Pisoni Vineyard - A Family Affair

Father Knows Best...
especially when he's the head vintner. We met Gary Pisoni, the larger-than-life wine visionary, at a wine tasting event along with his son, and fellow winemaker, Jeff. With Father's Day quickly approaching, we thought we would highlight their family vineyard: Pisoni Vineyard.

Pisoni Vineyard in the Santa Lucia Highlands of Monterey Count produces some of the finest pinot noir grapes in California. Besides bottling their own wines, the Pisoni vineyard grapes are also bottled by some of our favorite wineries, Capiaux and Siduri.

Pisoni's pinots are big, rich and full-bodied. If you enjoy the big, California style pinot, take a look around for the 2005, 2006 and 2007 vintages, you will not be disappointed. These wines will likely age for a few years, but why wait? Grab a bottle to celebrate this weekend with your dad. Cheers!


  1. Glad to see people enjoying the wines. It was definitely a fun tasting, and as always, it's great to meet fellow wine lovers.

    Look us up if you want some more info on our wines. As mentioned, we are a family from California's central coast, just committed to growing grapes and making the best wine we can. Our vineyard site is fortunate to get great intensity, while still retaining bright, balanced acidity.

    Check out our sister label also at Luciavineyards.com, and drop us a line if you ever have any questions.

    Enjoy the wine!
