From the heart of the beautiful Le Marche region of Italy, the Ramazzotti story began in 1958 when Ramazzotti Wines owner and winemaker Joe (Giuseppe) Ramazzotti immigrated to the Dry Creek Valley with his mother, Yolanda, father, Germano, and two sisters, Maria Lucia and Romana. A few years later they had two more children, Adriano and Linda. They brought with them a deep love of Italian farming, winemaking, traditions, and appreciation of life to the Dry Creek Valley. La terra—the earth and its gifts—is a tradition that has passed to our generations and guides everything we do in Sonoma County. You will see La terra throughout all the Ramazzotti vineyards, wines and products. The secrets—from both Le Marche and Dry Creek—are passion and quality. Passion to produce extraordinary fruit and wines; continuing the Ramazzotti traditions, and welcoming our customers and friends into our extended family is the essence of Ramazzotti.
