Papapietro Perry Winery

This article is one in a series of articles about our recent tour of California Wine Country. You can read about Day 1, Day 2, Day 3, Day 4, the Summary, the Winery Dogs and the Restaurants as well.  

On the second day of touring the Dry Creek region of Sonoma County, we visited Papapietro Perry Winery.

Papapietro Perry is located in what can only be described as an industrial park for wineries.  Six small wineries have their production facilities clustered together.  With land at a premium in Dry Creek Valley, this makes sense, and doesn’t detract from the wine.  Each winery has it’s own small tasting room.

 Wines sampled:
2006 Pinot Noir, Elsbree Vineyard, Russian River Valley
2007 Pinot Noir, Leras Family Vineyard, Russian River Valley
2006 Zinfandel, Russian River Valley
2005 Zinfandel, Elsbree Vineyard, Russian River Valley
