Earth Day Behind the Vine: Parducci Winery

"At Parducci, viticultural practices are rooted in the belief that
great wines begin in healthy vineyards."
Parducci Winery
Grape growing and wine making methods aren’t what they used to be. We seem to have come a long way from stomping on grapes. Sustainability is on the rise in every wine region in the world. Implementing sustainable farming practices wherever practical include recycling water with water reclamation ponds, using solar power, composting instead of fertilizing,recycling corks and on and on. Parducci Wine Cellars continues a dedication to environmentally sound practices with a commitment to minimizing their impact on the environment. Once considered a trend, “going green” seems poised to become an industry standard, and Parducci is clearly ahead of the game in every aspect.
Parducci Pinot Noir
Great spices combined with a cherry and red fruit note, earth and a subdued but present oak note.One of the only Pinot Noirs under $20 that can rival others on the shelf that cost twice as much. A textbook Pinot Noir from Mendocino that will have Sonoma County lovers thinking twice about the region.
Parducci Chardonnay
Abundant flavors of apple and citrus dominate this clean and stylish Chardonnay. Look for a fresh core of tropical fruit on the midpalate that leads way to a balanced finish with just the right amount of acidity.
Parducci Petite Syrah
Inky in color with aromas of cherry, blackberry, mint and chocolate. This big red's got spicy, dark fruit flavors and supple tannins. Petite in name only, this is a big mouthful of red with classic notes Mendocino has become famous for.
