Robert Renzoni Vineyards
The Renzoni winemaking tradition reaches back to the late 19th century when Frederico Renzoni tended vineyards in Italy. Eventually he immigrated to the United States, and, after several decades, started a distribution business for Italian and French wines. Frederico’s son, grandson and great-grandson would go on to work in the wine industry. In 2008, Robert Renzoni Winery started business.
The Renzoni vineyards consist of 12 acres. A large portion of the acreage is planted with Italian and Bordeaux varietals, such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Grigio and Sangiovese. The mature Cabernet vines produce full flavors. The Renzoni family has used the soil and property with specific purpose. They have planted each grape variety in specific locations and soil in order to lesson a need for extreme manipulation and artificial chemicals. The Renzonis believe in the appropriate pairing of varietal to microclimate.
The estate has a garden for enjoyment and picnics and for special events and parties. Guests may taste and purchase some of the award-winning wines in the tasting room. The 2008 Old Vine Zinfandel won a gold medal from Inland Empire Magazine wine competition. The 2010 La Rosa, a blush Sangiovese, won the Temecula Balloon and Wine Festival wine competition’s gold medal. The 2008 Barbera has a silver from the Orange County Fair. A number of the Robert Renzoni Vineyards wines have received awards and accolades. The winery prides itself on its tradition and consist class of wines. Members of the wine club, the “vino famiglia”, receive special tastings, tours and events.
