Fratelli Perata Winery Description

Fratelli Perata offers a variety of hand made wines with a distinctive Italian flair.  All are full-flavored, ranging from Sangiovese, Merlot, Petite Sirah, Petite Verdot, Syrah, Late Harvest Zinfandel, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon. They also produce a Super-Tuscan red and some proprietary blends. Wines are hand-made and produced entirely at the winery from their own estate fruit.

The Peratas initial plantings included Zinfandel. Their 31 acre vineyard,  established in 1980,  is completely  hand-worked and  hand-harvested.  The dry farmed grapes are cultivated  for small berry size. This produces less tonnage, but a higher skin to pulp ratio for rich extracts which give the wines a fuller flavor. Fourteen grape varieties are grown.

The tasting room is a rustic and authentic space lined with barrels on an ancient concrete floor. An old wine press is adjacent to the antique wood tasting bar.  Along the back wall is a richly colorful mural depicting  the Perata family in their northern Italian village.

The property has a lovely garden with pergolas, trellises, a bocce ball court, an outside tasting counter and a BBQ. Please call ahead for an appointment.

Our Favorite Reds
vcgeno, Scottsdale
The reds are incredible especially the Italian varietals. The tasting room is quaint, out of the way but worth the trip. They really make you feel at home. Our Favorite.

One of our best stops
Eagle12, Schaumburg
I made an appointment to visit on a Tuesday around noon time. Carol, one of the owners was on hand for our tasting in the small barrel room. She is very knowledgeable and we tasted 5 reds and each one was better than the last. There is a large Tuscan mural on the wall and music playing on the stereo. Quaint and comfortable. Carol recommended a couple other wineries and answered all of our questions. We picnicked out on her deck with one of the best views around. This was the best stop on our trip and we purchased 3 bottles of wine our favorite being the Bel Bruzo Montepulciano. Wines here are reflective of the Italian heritage of the winery owners. Make an Appointment and stop here, you will not be disappointed.
