About Us

The sign in the driveway of the Teldeschi ranch in Dry Creek Valley says, "Parking for Italians Only." Inside the house, the same rule seems to be enforced. The kitchen is commandeered by Caterina Teldeschi. Tomato sauce is simmering on the stove, along with steamed vegetables and rolls of sauteed beef.

Our Wines

On 70 acres in various parts of Dry Creek Valley, the Teldeschis grow Zinfandel, Petite Sirah and Carignane, some Cabernet, a little Gamay, some Malvasia, Cinsault and more. "We have some Palomino and French Colombard, too," says John Teldeschi, Frank & Caterina's secondo maschio (second son) "I leave it out for the deer and turkeys. That way they don't eat the other stuff." The vines range in age from one year to ninety years. "Three-quarters of them were planted by my dad," says John, "and most of them are Zinfandel. Zinfandel was his favorite. He always thought it would be what it is today."
