Sangiacomo Vineyards Celebrates 95 Years in Sonoma County

By September 27, 2022Top News

The Sangiacomo family celebrated 95 years of farming and stewardship in Sonoma County wine country. The family’s roots in the region began on Aug. 30, 1927, when founder Vittorio Sangiacomo signed the deed to the 55-acre Eden Dale ranch, at the southern end of the Sonoma Valley in what is now the Carneros appellation. The historic agricultural property, dating back to the mid-1800s, was at the time an award-winning fruit tree farm, but shifted agricultural focus after planting its first Sonoma vineyard, Green Acres, in 1969. For the past 53 years, the family has continued their farming heritage by growing premium cool-climate wine grapes from their 1,600 acres of certified sustainable estate vineyards in Carneros, the Petaluma Gap and Sonoma Coast. To celebrate the near-century milestone, the Sangiacomos are releasing the remaining amounts of the vineyard’s namesake Home Ranch Chardonnay, including the inaugural 2016 vintage, along with many other exclusive estate bottlings.
