We believe that wine is ultimately defined by the vineyard, and we make our wines to showcase the high quality fruit grown at Tedeschi Family Winery. Our 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.
Our wines include Cabernet Sauvignon from our dry-farmed Calistoga Estate, Merlot, Pinot Noir, Petite Sirah, Chardonnay, Viognier, and a dry Rosé. The coming year will be adding Primitivo to our portfolio. With an annual production of less than 900 cases, the workmanship and family aspect of our winery is truly characterized by quality over quantity.
Eugene Tedeschi purchased his family property in the 1950's on the outskirts of Calistoga. When he purchased it, there were acres of various fruit trees, including apples and persimmons. To savor the beauty, he planted his grapvines between the trees, planting rows of grapes interwined with the diverse fruit trees. He planted many varietals of grapes, including Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel, and Petite Sirah.
Today, Emil Tedeschi is back managing the same property with his three children. He has since then replanted the vineyard, dedicating 1 acre of the estate to Cabernet Sauvignon.
During a personalized tour given by one of the family winemakers, we’ll show you everything that goes into making a wine, from how we plant, care for, and hand-harvest the grapes, to the aging, blending, and hand-bottling. Join us for this truly unforgettable experience, located just one mile north of Calistoga in the heart of Napa Valley.
