Pellegrini Family Vineyards
The Pellegrini Family has been growing grapes in Sonoma County for 4 generations. Brothers Nello and Gino Pellegrini first moved to the region in 1925. It was the height of Prohibition, and the brothers began selling grapes to home winemakers under the Volstead Act.
The winery produces estate wines under 3 different labels: Pellegrini, Olivet Lane, and Cloverdale Ranch. Located in the Russian River Valley AVA, the 65 acre Olivet Lane Estate is planted with Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.
The 55 acre Cloverdale Ranch is located in the northern part of the Alexander Valley AVA. It is planted with Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Both of these grapes are bottled as single varietals.
The current releases produced under the Pellegrini label consist of the 2005 Redwood Valley Carignane, 2005 Russian River Valley Chardonnay, 2005 Leveroni Vineyard Lake County Sauvignon Blanc, and the 2005 Russian River Valley Zinfandel.
