and Sebastiani Vineyards.Since 1922 the Bartolucci Family has
consistently created a perfect marriage of grapes and wine at Madonna
Estate. Located in the world-renowned Carneros region, an area known for
its fertile lands and cool climate, the Bartolucci family has found
success with their organically grown grapes and Estate Bottled wines. In
addition to practicing natural farming methods, they also combine
traditional and modern wine making techniques. As the third oldest wine
making family in the Napa Valley, it is important to them that they
continue the commitment to farm naturally and preserve the wine making
traditions of past generations.When the Trinchero family bought
the Sutter Home Winery in 1948, they had a vision, a passion, and
apparently, an insight into consumer tastes. In the early 1970s, Sutter
Home started a trend when the company created White Zinfandel,
introducing a new, sweeter flavor profile. They changed the way
Americans enjoyed wine by offering them high-quality varietals at an
affordable price. By the 1980s and 1990s, Sutter Home became a household
name and the second largest independent family-run winery in the United
States.A festival-style center, once known as ìVintage 1870,î Marketplace offers upscale specialty shops, galleries and restaurants, a
wine tasting cellar, and Napa Valleyís original hot air balloon
company, all housed within and around the historic Groezinger Winery
complex. Meandering cobblestone walkways, scenic views and lush picnic
gardens surround the property. Special events and entertainment are
scheduled year-round. Time for lunch at V Marketplace is approximately 1
1/2 hours.With over a century of wine making experience in
Sonoma, Sebastiani Vineyards & Winery focuses on crafting small lots
of premium wines from Sonoma County. Today, Sebastiani Vineyards &
Winery advances its record of acclaim under the guidance of vintner and
entrepreneur Bill Foley, who acquired the winery in 2008. As part of
Foley Family Wines, Sebastiani will maintain its commitment to producing
singular wines from the appellations of Sonoma County.At each winery you will spend approximately 1-hour for tour and tasting. Sit back, relax, and enjoy a scenic drive over the Golden Gate Bridge on your way back into San Francisco.
