Parducci Wine Cellars Description

The villa-style tasting room of Parducci is reminiscent of an underground wine cellar. Once inside the aged winery building, you step down into a grotto featuring an extensive gift shop and a tasting counter serving a wide range of easy-drinking, consumer-friendly wines.

John Parducci started his winery in 1932, and was the first vintner to locate in Mendocino County. The winery’s ownership has changed over the years, and in 2004 new proprietors, made up of longtime wine-industry professionals, purchased Parducci. They operate the business with the goal of creating wines using sustainable vineyard and winery practices. Parducci is the country's first carbon nuetral winery. They incorporate solar power, wind energy and have converted company vehicles and farm equipment to biodiesel fuel.

The wines of Parducci are fruit-forward and affordable. The grapes come from their own organic vineyards and from over 30 growers in the area. The new packaging on some of their wines is designed to be fun, approachable and a bit irreverent. Check out their Tusk ’N Red, their Zig Zag Zin, or the Zinfandel-based Zingaro.

Their deli can prepare sandwiches and salads for you to enjoy on their outdoor cobblestone patio. The winery makes the white wines Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Grigio, Chardonnay, Bianco, White Zinfandel, and Muscat Canelli. Their reds include Pinot Noir, Zinfandel, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and their flagship Petite Sirah.

Old World Nouveau
emyann, Lakeport
We went on a tour and it began in the demonstration vineyard. We ate ripening grapes and then headed up to the winery. They have old redwood holding tanks still in use...VERY SPECIAL. To top it off, the wines were amazing and the staff paired them with great bread and cheeses.

We love this place!
Wino, San Francisco
Its an old California wine name and what a fine stop on our northern tour. The green thing is fully embraced here, but it isn't a Birkenstock wearing, vegan place serving up unfined grape swill! The grotto like tasting room has lots of cool stuff and some neat affordable wines that taste good!

Going Green
Kendra, Santa Rosa
This is an old winery with a new goal of going green and being a carbon neutral business. The place has lots of wine and lots of fun labels. We hung around a bit in their patio and enjoyed the red wines.
