Wines of the Month

Ron Donati grew up in South San Francisco, the son of a first generation Italian-American family. One of his fondest memories was the sights and smells of his grandfather making wine in his basement. Like most Italian immigrants, Albino Donati made his own wine for the family dinner table. This same passion serves as the foundation and guiding mission of Donati Family Vineyard today. The Donati Family Estate Vineyard site enjoys a variety of soils from limestone to decomposed granite to clay loam, as well as the benefits of the cooling ocean breezes of the Monterey Bay. Like much of southern Napa, Sonoma, and Monterey counties, the Paicines AVA has long warm days followed by cool nights.

The vineyard is planted to various select clones of Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec, Syrah, Pinot Grigio, Pinot Blanc and Petit Verdot.

Donati “Seven Sisters Forever” Chardonnay, Central Coast 2015
Glass $8.00 / Bottle $30.00

The Seven Sisters Forever Chardonnay is vinified in the style of a French Chablis.  The grapes are fermented in stainless steel and receive no oak aging. It has aromas of stonefruit, bananas and citrus with a lush palate and crisp acidity on the finish which is characteristic of this style of wine.

Donati Family Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon, Paicines-Central Coast, 2015
Glass $8.00 / Bottle $30.00

The Cabernet Sauvignon is stainless steel fermented and 100% barrel aged in oak of which 17% is new oak.  The wine is composed of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon and 25% Merlot.  The wine exhibits aromas of dark cherry, leather and earth.  Flavors of cherry and cocoa dominate the midpalate and the wine displays a nice balance of acid and tannin.
