About the Winery
Several decades and one career ago, we began a ceaseless inquiry into all things Italianate. Especially those things which embellish our Californian lifestyle and since we are part of the wine industry, it was only natural we embraced Italian grape varieties. We took care to truly understand the various means of vinification and aging that give our wines a more authentic expression. We believe the resulting food friendly wines defy the typical ‘over the top’ Californian experience.
We are not attempting to duplicate what Italy has to offer. Rather, we are creating our own interpretation, to bridge the best of both worlds. We are honoring what Italy has done for centuries while bringing a modern product to American consumers. We strive to produce interesting and affordable wines for all occasions and something for virtually any food pairing.
Today Uvaggio offers a range of fruity, expressive wines – white, pink and red – they are mostly dry though one is sweet. The historic origins for the grapes in our portfolio of cultivars range from Italy’s extreme northeast adjacent to Austria, the northwest near France, to the coastal region around the Tyrrhenian Sea, down Italy’s peninsula, right at the heel of its boot.
