About
Papapietro Perry Winery specializes in small lots of handcrafted, single-vineyard designate Pinot Noir and Zinfandel produced from the finest grapes the Russian River, Anderson and Dry Creek Valleys have to offer. In addition, we are now producing a limited amount of Chardonnay and Rose. When asked what style of wine we make, the response is always ‘great wines’. After we’ve all laughed, the real answer emerges. After almost 30 years of winemaking, we still firmly believe in a minimalist approach—allowing the wine to express itself and reflect the growing season through the nuances that appear from vintage to vintage. For this to happen and to produce those ‘great wines’, it is vital to pay attention to every detail; carefully attending to every step of the winemaking process, yet always with a light hand. We don’t over-extract or over-oak our wines. We give the wines the fermentation and aging environments that allow them to become exceptional—so we can smell and taste what the fruit has to offer us.

I have the pleasure of visiting Dry Creek once or twice a year. I am familiar with dozens of the tasting rooms in this area and wholeheartedly recommend this treasure!
The entire team here is outstanding. Nancy goes above and beyond and there is something special about the way she makes you feel when you visit. She came in on her day off to check in on our group of 9. Who does that? The entire team there last week was on their a-game and they made me look so good! (thank you, Nancy and PPW!)
Next up is the wine...it's love at first smell. Is it weird that I want to put this in a pretty perfume bottle and just smell my wrist all day long? But then you take a sip and your whole body just relaxes and something comes over you. You realize how special it is to be exactly where you are, exactly at that point in time enjoying a simply incredible Pinot. These wines are amazingly delicious and seem to get better each year; which I didn't think was possible. Quite honestly, part of me wants to keep this precious wine and tasting deck a secret all for myself and the other part wants to share with everyone and for this gem to flourish. :-)
Just pure love for PPW; their wines, their team and all that they are. See you guys next time! PS: thank you again, Nancy!

Had a lovely wine-tasting Tuesday at Papapietro Perry and were welcomed by the knowledgable Josef. A bright glass of Rosé greeted us as we entered and were seated outside overlooking the vineyard. Outside seating is plentiful and was shaded out of the sun. Since Papapietro specializes in Pinot Noirs, we were trying 4 Pinots from different vineyards. We had ordered (in advance) a charcuterie plate (shown) which was a welcome addition to the tasting and enough for two people who were on their way to lunch afterwards. Our first Pinot was our favorite - very light, silky and smooth. I could have had the entire bottle. I bought one for later. The other Pinots were all wonderful and got progressively more deeper and more complex. Josef did an amazing job explaining the wines and the history of the winemakers. You can tell he is passionate about his job and the wines that are served. Finally, after some minor begging, we were able to try their famous Zinfandel, which was spicy, deep and a delicious. Another purchase for me! On our way to the car, we ran into Wine Club Manager Kristen Greenberg who taught us a little about Zinfandel grapes in the neighboring vineyard (another passionate wine person!). Our day here was like a staycation. Loved every minute. Now the big question is, to join or not to join? (The Wine Club). By the way, Papapietro Perry is situated within a compound of other wineries. If you come by, you can park, walk around, try other places and then sit at nearby tables with your picnic lunch. I plan to return soon.

Papapietro was recommended by friends and I am pleased to report that it met all of my expectations. The outdoor patio was lovely, comfortable to leisurely sample 5 different wines. I joined the wine club so that we could enjoy the wine at home.

My wife and I had a great time at Papapietro Perry. Wines were delicious, server friendly and knowledgeable, great views. Can be a little cool tasting on the patio, so bring a jacket. The disappointment was that for non-members they do not wave any of the tasting fees with bottle purchases.

We visited a range of wineries while in Somona, but Papapietro Perry was probably our favorite. The wine was fantastic, the charcuterie plate was delicious, and the view from the deck was beautiful. But, honestly, it was the woman who conducted our tasting that really made the experience special. She informative and fun throughout.

We truly enjoyed it!

I visited Papapietro in July with my sisters for a scheduled wine tasting. Shelly hosted our tasting and was exceptional and at that time I made the decision to join the wine club (a first).
The follow up email about the wine club and shipment notification was thorough and timely. I needed to make a change to the delivery address after the wine had shipped and Jamie was so very helpful and able to accommodate my request.
The wines we tasted were exceptional and the customer service 'over the top' . I look forward to more amazing wines and being part of Papapietro!

A great wine tasting experience is comprised of three components- great setting, great people and of course, great wine. This was one that ticked all three with high marks. Beautiful porch setting on Dry Creek Valley Road. Excellent and professional staff- Michelle was both knowledgeable and friendly and led us through the tasting at a relaxed pace. The owners were there and engaged us in conversation and were a joy to speak with. The wines were excellent as they specialize in Pinot, but also make other varietals. Don’t miss this as one of your stops in wine country!!

Papapietro Perry winery is an enjoyable, relaxed place to try some outstanding wines. Their rose was completely sold out but we still got to try it. Loved it and the charcuterie! I can’t wait to go back again!

We have been coming to Papapietro Perry for many years and found our most recent visit to be as pleasurable as the first was more than 10 years ago. The wines are among the best expressions of Pinot Noir that I know of. As a winemaker myself, I know well the difficulties associated with making consistently good wines, especially Pinot Noir.

We enjoyed an extensive tasting of delicious pinot noirs and chardonnay. Devon, our host, was exceedingly knowledgeable, friendly and engaging.
It was a true pleasure to spend time where such a passion for quality wine is evident!
