Stemming from four generations of Italian immigrant farming, John Pianetta Jr.â€™s family has worked throughout California and has a history of home winemaking since 1914. After being introduced to vineyard farming in Lodi, California in the 1970â€™s, John decided that this was the route he intended to follow. In 1996, the Pianetta family purchased a 95-acre parcel in the southern Monterey County city of San Miguel, California and hired a well-respected vineyard manager, Bob Goodwin, to help them develop an ultra-premium red wine grape vineyard. Since their first harvest in 1999, the majority of the estate grapes have been sold to a renowned first-class winery, with small quantities set aside to carry on the family tradition of home winemaking. After momentous success with the grapes, the Pianetta family was inspired to start a winery of their own. The familyâ€™s first official releases in 2002 received several medals from various state and national wine competitions, and Pianetta Vineyards and Winery was off and running. A strictly reds-only producer of 100% estate varietals, Pianetta Winery represents a collective, inherited dream of four generations and with each vintage, demonstrates the familyâ€™s character and tradition.
