Our winemaking starts with a commitment to quality, which drives our attention to each detail of the winemaking process and our belief in focusing on small-lot production. We use a vineyard expressionist approach to winemaking, allowing the uniqueness of each vineyard and each varietal to be expressed. The result is a family of wines of uncompromising quality that are also approachable and beautifully balanced, perfect to savor on their own or enjoy with food.
Each vineyard, whether in the Dry Creek Valley or elsewhere in Sonoma county, is carefully chosen for its unique soils, microclimates, clones, exposure and age. Each is farmed with a commitment to quality, and therefore every vineyard we choose yields wine worthy of our name: wines of elegance, distinction and complexity.
“Here at Passalacqua, I’m hands-on from the vineyard to the bottle, coaxing each vineyard to express its unique qualities. I can personally craft each wine according to my winemaking philosophy: Pure varietal intensity tempered with balance and finesse.”winemaker, Margaret Davenport.
