More about this wine from Dry Creek Valley, Sonoma County, California
The Pedroncellis have been making wine in Sonoma County, California since the 1920s. And to be an American winemaker before the 1980s was a Herculean task. Back then, European wines dominated the global market and US wines were considered inferior — until the late 70s at a France v. Cali blind tasting where California wines won. It changed everything for US winemakers, including the Pedroncellis, whose fourth generation is now coming up the ranks making local-style wine that gains its personality from the Dry Creek Valley soils. This bottle of Cabernet Franc is an excellent representation of what sweat, love, commitment, and good soil can do.
