Papapietro Perry Winery
No appointment necessary.
Tasting room is in Dry Creek Valley.
Almost all of Dry Creek is Zin focused...Papapietro Perry is all about the PINOT!
Located in the historic Timber Crest Farm and Winery Collective.
No need to spend the day driving around and tasting.
Loads of great tasting rooms located in Timber Crest:
Papapietro/Amphora/Kokomo/Peterson Wineries and the Family Wineries Tasting Room.
Two tasting flight options:
$15 for a tasting of 3 wines.
You'll taste 2 single vineyard designate Pinot Noirs and a Sonoma Coast blend Pinot Noir.
Really Spectacular Tasting:
$25 for a tasting of 3 Pinots.
Two of their most popular and award-winning Pinot Noirs.
Wine is also available for purchase by the glass.
A seated one hour patio tasting with cheese is $45.
Dog friendly outside.
I THINK they are kid friendly but might want to call before hand.
Electric Vehicle charging station out front.
Known as a TOP Sonoma County Pinot producer.
Producing 10 Pinots in total!!!
Grapes come from Anderson Valley, Russian River Valley, and Sonoma Coast.
Strictly winemakers here with longstanding relationships with exceptional grape growers.
Besides Pinot, they do have some additional delicious wine options:
Chardonnay, Zin, and a special 20th anniversary sparkling Brut!
Wines range from $43-$79.
Average cost $58 per bottle.
The tasting room is humble and homey.
The outside patio has epic views of Dry Creek Valley.
As I sat on one of the patio couches, surrounded by lush green plants, and huge colorful rugs...
I had this European meets Havana Cuba vibe.
You May Not Know
I can TOTALLY relate to how Papapietro Perry Winery got its start.
Back in the 80's it was a group of friends who wanted to drink delicious Pinot every day.
Sounds like my kinda people!
Ben Papapietro and Bruce Perry have been friends for 40 years!
They started making Pinot in a garage and the rest is history.
Both native San Franciscans.
Production is small to keep quality HIGH.
They also have the most hilarious t-shirts for sale in the tasting room!
You can tell humor is essential to the brand.
Snip-its of winery reviews and tasting notes taken out of context and placed on shirts:
"Long lasting...with a big finish" "Generous Mouthful Of Pleasure" "Lush & Lively"
Tasting room staff are super friendly.
Thank you Willow for a wonderful tasting experience.
Willow also does the social media and outreach for the winery.
Be sure to follow them on all social.
Willow keeps the FB events up-to-date!
I visited Papapietro Perry during Winter Wineland this past year.
WHAT A FUN EVENT!
Clearly, this winery knows how to party and have a great time.
Their extremely popular July event is the:
10th Annual Chardonnay and Lobster!
I want to go sooooooooooo bad!
This dinner is held in the cellar.
Imagine Maine lobster, shrimp, sausage, corn on the cob, whole garlic, artichokes and onions poured out on to the center of your table.
Chardonnay, Rosé and Pinot Noirs are poured to guests.
It also looks like they do some 'Oysters On The Patio' days in the summer months too.
Papapietro Winery is the perfect spot for me.
First, I am a Pinot LOOOOOVER!
Second, I love hanging out in the emerald green, Dry Creek Valley.
Papapietro Winery is my new favorite spot.
I want to be relaxing on their patio NOW.
Plus, I like supporting happy and jolly people.
I get the sense everyone associated with this winery falls into that category.
I'd love to join their wine club so I can get complete access to all the Papapietro perks!
