The Scotto family releases 50 Harvests, to commemorate fifty consecutive California harvests for this pioneering winemaking family. Five generations of Scottos have produced wine dating back to 1883 in Italy. In 1963, they moved to California, and have been making quality wines every year since. Their next fifty year journey as 5th generation vintners continues with the release of this 2013 Napa Valley Meritage, an elegant red wine from a superb vintage.

Good Taste from the Heart of California’s Wine Country!
Introducing the new look of 99 Vines, the wine that brings you good taste from the heart of California’s wine country. The new package is also easier to open and close, but that’s all that’s changed- The reds, whites and blush wines inside still fill your glass with the good taste that comes from the vineyards surrounding Highway 99.
Anthony & Dominic
Through the years, the family has instilled their values, traditions and winemaking standards in the next generation. They also passed down two names that appear throughout our family tree – Anthony & Dominic. The Russian River Chardonnay has bright, crisp citrus flavors and ideal acidity. The finish is subtle and creamy with a hint of vanilla bean.

Where quality is always in style!
When my great grandfather immigrated to New York in 1903, he moved his family into in a “brownstone” apartment. This popular building material not only housed many Italian families in the northeast, it was often quarried by Italians as well. These wines honor our Italian-American ancestors, who paved the way for future generations by “working the brownstone.” – Natalie J. Woods

The Winemaker tasted and sampled his blends
Barrels and grapes, then he tasted again

A taste so delightful the grapes on the vine
Were dancing with joy to be part of this wine!

In the ring or in your glass – smoother is better!
Heavyweight wines originated when our winemaker discovered an unusually flavorful barrel of Cabernet Sauvignon and asked the Scotto Family to use it for some real “Heavyweight” wines. The 2006 Cabernet introduction was followed by these award winning champions that stand the test of time. Red wine champions KO the competition with a full-bodied start and lush, dark fruit and berry flavors that leave no room to run. The soft vanilla oak finish is smooth and satisfying, like every well balanced champion.

It’s good to be a Knucklehead- at least if you are an ancient Sierra Foothills Zinfandel vineyard. Head pruning leaves these vines twisted like old, contorted knuckles, making it easy to recognize these vineyards. More importantly, this helps produce small clusters of intensely flavored fruit. After hand harvesting, this fruit goes through an extended fermentation that concentrates the dark berry and spice flavors which are then enhanced by barrel aging.
|2012||Red Blend||Sierra Foothills|
|2013||Old Vine Zinfandel||Sierra Foothills|
From time to time, our winemaker uncovers limited lots of fruit that reflect their vineyard heritage and can be transformed into distinctive varietals. Limited Lot is the result-small releases from California’s finest regions.

Bianca’s White is an expressive blend of 62% Sauvignon Blanc and 38% Semillon with exceptional depth and character. Each varietal was aged in white Bordeaux French oak barrels and stirred on the lees to enhance the richness and complexity.

It also welcomes our sister Bianca into our 5th generation family of vintners.

Old Vine Estates
-On Premise Selection-
“Wine is better with food, and food is better with wine” was the legacy Anthony Scotto III’s grandfather passed down to his family, along with his winemaking skills.
That legacy is the standard for Old Vine Estates– wines created for the dinner table to pour with family and friends. In winemaking terms, this means well balanced wines with natural acidity to compliment the fruit flavors and aromas; cool fermented, unoaked whites, and medium bodied reds with tamed tannins.
Think Pink! Pink Umbrella! Floral aromas and rich, ripe fruit flavors make these the easy pink wines to savor whether poured with meals or enjoyed before just be prepared to pass around more so when choosing your wine, no need to worry. Open the umbrella and pour in a hurry!
A rich, luscious Chardonnay demonstrates the characters that make Santa Lucia Highland wines highly sought after. Wine Maker Travis Proctor started his 15-year career in winemaking shortly after graduating from USC with a degree from the School of Cinema and Television. As harvest worker in Templeton, California, he became entranced with the intricacies of wine production and was startled to find it quite similar to film-making: a combination of artistic sensibility and technical execution.

The Vermeil home had a very “Old World” feel to it where wine was enjoyed by all at the dinner table from a very young age. Vermeil and his brothers would also help their grandfather Vermeil make the family wine, further deepening his love of wine. After making a Cabernet Sauvignon as a “hobby” starting with the 1999 vintage we turned it into a business in 2008 with the formation of Vermeil Wines.

France – Montmartre
To many visitors, Montmartre is considered the very heart of Paris. Surrounding the city’s prominent hill, below its white-domed Basilica of the Sacre Couer, Montmartre was once the bustling, free-wheeling entertainment capital of Europe, home to such famed attractions as the Moulin Rouge cabaret. Since the mid-1800s, artists like Picasso, Matisse, Salvador Dalí, van Gogh and Toulouse-Lautrec have all occupied studios around this landmark hilltop. Montmartre Rosé Sec sparkling wine is a distinctive cuvee that salutes this exuberant bohemian community of painters, poets, musicians and dance-hall performers.

France – Veuve Devienne
Winegrowing in France is often a family owned vineyard and winery operation handed down through the generations. Veuve Devienne (“the Widow Devienne”) gave her family name to a traditional sparkling wine – a classic Brut cuvée – after many years of growing white grapes for the production of premium table wines. Although much of the family history has been lost over time, this sparkling wine has remained true to its origins: a rigorous selection of grapes, slow secondary fermentation (while those delightful bubbles are created) and bottling in a traditional style.
