V. Sattui Winery stands today as the result of hard work, dedication, and the extraordinary vision of two men who happen to be related. Vittorio Sattui started the business in 1885 after emigrating from Genoa, Italy. The law-abiding Vittorio was forced to shut down when Prohibition went into effect, and the winery would lay dormant until 1976, when Vittorio’s great-grandson, Dario, would realize his dream of resurrecting the family business in the town of St. Helena in Napa Valley.
V. Sattui Winery crafts one of the largest selections of award-winning, small-batch, small lot wines to suit a wide range of tastes. They believe great winemaking starts in the vineyard, where they use sustainable and organic vineyard practices. They harvest each grape at the peak of flavor, then use time-honored techniques combined with technologically advanced winemaking equipment to make wines with depth of flavor, complexity, and richness.
