Third generation brothers Mike and Steve Sangiacomo and their brother-in-law Mike Pucci have changed the wine game.The Sangiacomos practice a philosophy where, in the grape growing business, slow and steady can win the race. After speaking with Steve Sangiacomo, it would appear that their goal is to under-promise and over-deliver, a mantra that has catapulted them to the top of their game. Their wines offer a deep appreciation for nuance and for specialty. These days, it's not good enough to make wine that is mearly flawless; it has to be distinctive too.
What distinguishes Sangiacomo Family Vineyards is their 100 unique sites spread over 14 vineyards in 4 AVAs, which allows for the extraordinary range of flavors displayed by such classics as their Chardonnay and Pinot Noir...and boy, are they great.
