A second generation Italian-American, Ron Donati inherited an appreciation for good wine from his father and grandfather, who often poured him glasses at the family dinner table growing up. His ancestors also taught him the value of hard work combined with an adventuresome spirit, and it is this Donati family philosophy that gave him the foundation he needed to succeed first as a CPA, then as an entrepreneur, and now as the co-owner of the Donati Family Vineyard. In 1997, Ron and his son Matt, who had an interest in farming, started looking at potential vineyard land and ultimately decided on an old vineyard in Paicines, a small growing region on Californiaâ€™s Central Coast. A few short, hardworking years later, the Donati Family Vineyard was established and the father-son duo teamed up with veteran winemaker Dan Kleck, who has been producing premium wines across the United States for the past 28 years. With an array of Gold Medals, Critics Awards, and stunning acclaimed reviews, the Donati Family Vineyard is the premier example of how careful viticultural research along with entrepreneurial spirit has led to the establishment of an exciting, and successful, new wine brand in one of the Central Coastâ€™s most undiscovered regions.
