Sbragia Family Vineyards

Sonoma County

There may be no better name in California wine for consistently high quality as Sbragia. To the uninitiated the name at first might be a little tricky, but once you’ve got it (sa-brah-jee-uh) you’ve joined a legion of followers who know the name that has been associated both with top-rated Napa Valley wines as well as the rich farming history of Dry Creek Valley.

Founder Ed Sbragia first became famous for his “day job” – the master winemaker behind Beringer Vineyards’ top-rated Cabernet Sauvignon that in 1990 was awarded Wine Spectator’s Wine of the Year. Then Ed did it again in 1996 with Beringer’s Reserve Chardonnay. The hard-working Fresno State Masters grad had earned his status as a California winemaster. But, in a case of dual identities, the Napa Valley superstar was originally from neighboring Dry Creek Valley in Sonoma County where his Italian immigrant grandfather farmed prunes, and where he grew up helping his father Gino farm Zinfandel and other grapes for other wineries. In 2006 Ed decided it was time to realize the dream of his father to produce wines from the family’s Dry Creek estate – Zinfandel, Petite Sirah and blends. Added to the lineup were Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignons and Chardonnay, and Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay from Russian River Valley.

Today, Ed’s son Adam Sbragia who learned the craft of making wines in the trenches at other wineries has now assumed the mantle of Sbragia winemaker, leading the family farming tradition into a fourth generation. Visits to taste and purchase Sbragia Zinfandels and other wines can be arranged at either the scenic winery adjacent to Lake Sonoma or at the family’s comfortable tasting lounge on Broadway near the plaza in downtown Sonoma.
