Founder's Reserve - Wine Club Exclusive Offering

Introducing a very special blend created by Ben Papapietro.

In 2017, while tasting the grapes from the vineyards, Winemaker, Ben Papapietro had the idea to craft a special Pinot Noir celebrating the relationships we have with our growers and the land. Going back to the beginning and our relationships with both Randy Peters and Nick Leras – this exclusive Pinot Noir is a celebration of the best of the best of these vineyards and the 2017 vintage.

Papapietro Perry Winery was born in 1998 in San Francisco. After years of home winemaking, Ben Papapietro & Bruce Perry transferred their home winemaking to a working winery in Sonoma County. Adding newer vineyards was a top priority and in 1999, our relationship with Randy Peters and Nick Leras began.

65% Peters Vineyard and 35% Leras Family Vineyards, this blend is outstanding. This profoundly complex vintage yet again showcases the quality of fruit we receive from our Russian River growers. Like all of our Pinot Noirs, this vintage is crafted for longevity. Cellaring for another 2-4 years will allow the wine to continue to build complexity while softening the tannins.
