Owner description: 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.

While the Papapietro Perry pinot is excellent, this is one of the few wineries in the valley that doesn't apply the tasting fee to purchases. The wine is already higher priced, in the $50 range. The price tag in combination with the poor tasting room experience makes this a winery you can skip - there are plenty of others with good pinots, better prices and a better experience.

If you like Reds, this is a must stop off Dry creek Road. The variety or quality pinots, cabs and zins are amazing. Bonus: There are three other wine tasting rooms across the parking lot

If you are a Pinot fan then you do NOT want to miss Papapietro-Perry!!! Hands down my favorite Pinot's. Most of the wines are in the $50 range. Just close your eyes and hand over your credit card. Lol. I subtracted one star because the tasting room experience didn't live up to expectation. Nothing bad, just nothing great. It is located on a road with several tasting rooms along it so its very easy to visit a number of different vineyards at one stop. Almost like a co-op or flea market for lack of a better word.

Great opportunity to compare and contrast their delicious Pinot Noirs. The vista from their deck is breathtaking.
