Three Generations of Grapegrowing

 

A GREEK LEGACY

Since 1969, the George Fotinos family has been growing premium pinot noir grapes in the heart of Napa's Carneros region.  What was once a prune orchard on Old Sonoma Road today is 25 acres of premium pinot noir vines and reservoir.  The vineyard is operated with sustainable farming practices and sufficient irrigation from captured rainwater each year.  Today, Vivian Fotinos and the Fotinos Sisters and their families are partners in vineyard operations and wine making.  The first vintage of Fotinos Vineyard Pinot Noir was bottled in 2003.  George passed away in August of 2014, but Fotinos Vineyard carries on as a family partnership between Vivian, Angela, Margaret, and Elaine.
