We love Tedeschi Family Winery because they make hand-crafted, premium old world style delicious wines the old-fashioned way, in small batches (about 1200 cases annually) with no shortcuts and offered with family style hospitality.
Tedeschi believes that wine is ultimately defined by the vineyard, and they make their wines to showcase the high quality fruit grown at Tedeschi Family Winery. Their Bordeaux-style wines are balanced, lower in alcohol, and offer complex flavors and aromas, making them perfect for food pairing.
The Tedeschi Family has been producing wines in the Napa Valley since 1919, when the first generation immigrated to America from Pisa, Italy. Emil Tedeschi set out in 1991 to accomplish his dream of redeveloping his father’s orchards in Calistoga and starting his own small family operated winery. To this day, Emil works alongside his two sons, Emilio, Mario, and his daughter, Elaine as they continue to produce handcrafted wines in the tradition of his own Italian heritage.
Tedeschi wines include Cabernet Sauvignon from their dry-farmed Calistoga Estate, Merlot, Pinot Noir, Petite Sirah, Chardonnay, Viognier, and a dry Rosé. And they will be adding Primitivo to their portfolio in the coming year, which we’re all very much looking forward to. With an annual production of about 1200 cases, the workmanship and family aspect of The Tedeschi Family Winery is truly characterized by quality over quantity.
We love coming here for our Join-In Wine Tours, which often includes a personalized tour given by one of the family wine makers showing everything that goes into making their wine – from how they plant, care for, and hand-harvest the grapes, to the aging, blending, and hand-bottling process – making for a truly unforgettable wine tour experience.
