From Estate Grown to Estate Bottled FORCHINI VINEYARDS & WINERY is a small family owned and operated winery committed to making distinctive wines from our historic vineyards in the Dry Creek and Russian River Valley appellations of Sonoma County, California.
After being grape growers in Sonoma County since 1971, the dream of creating wines from our own vineyards finally became a reality in 1996 when we started in a small barrel room making 425 cases. Annual production today is limited to 3000 cases of delicious wines which are consistent medal winners in major wine competitions. You will taste the love of the land and grape in every bottle of FORCHINI wine.
Dedication to the environment is a top concern at FORCHINI. Sustainable vineyard practices that minimize pesticide usage are employed in all our vineyards while composting of winery pomace has been a tradition for decades. Solar power is generated for winery buildings and vineyard pumps and goats and sheep are pastured in the vineyards during winter for cover crop control and soil rejuvenation.
We welcome you to visit our winery. Picnic on the patio, surround yourself with exceptional views of our vineyards and Dry Creek Valley while enjoying a great glass of FORCHINI wine.
Tasting Room is open Friday-Sunday 11-4:30; other days by appointment.
Tasting Fee, $10 per person, is refunded with purchase.
