You May Not Know

  • I can TOTALLY relate to how Papapietro Perry Winery got its start.

  • Back in the 80’s it was a group of friends who wanted to drink delicious Pinot every day.

  • Sounds like my kinda people!

  • Ben Papapietro and Bruce Perry have been friends for 40 years!

  • They started making Pinot in a garage and the rest is history.

  • Both native San Franciscans.

  • Production is small to keep quality HIGH.

  • They also have the most hilarious t-shirts for sale in the tasting room!

  • You can tell humor is essential to the brand.

  • Snip-its of winery reviews and tasting notes taken out of context and placed on shirts:

  • “Long lasting…with a big finish” “Generous Mouthful Of Pleasure” “Lush & Lively”

  • Tasting room staff are super friendly.

  • Especially WILLOW!

  • Thank you Willow for a wonderful tasting experience.

  • Willow also does the social media and outreach for the winery.

  • Be sure to follow them on all social.

  • Willow keeps the FB events up-to-date!


Sheila’s Recommendation

  • I visited Papapietro Perry during Winter Wineland this past year.


  • Clearly, this winery knows how to party and have a great time.

  • Their extremely popular July event is the:

  • 10th Annual Chardonnay and Lobster!

  • I want to go sooooooooooo bad!

  • This dinner is held in the cellar.

  • Imagine Maine lobster, shrimp, sausage, corn on the cob, whole garlic, artichokes and onions poured out on to the center of your table.

  • Chardonnay, Rosé and Pinot Noirs are poured to guests.

  • It also looks like they do some ‘Oysters On The Patio’ days in the summer months too.

  • Papapietro Winery is the perfect spot for me.

  • First, I am a Pinot LOOOOOVER!

  • Second, I love hanging out in the emerald green, Dry Creek Valley.

  • Papapietro Winery is my new favorite spot.

  • I want to be relaxing on their patio NOW.

  • Plus, I like supporting happy and jolly people.

  • I get the sense everyone associated with this winery falls into that category.

  • I’d love to join their wine club so I can get complete access to all the Papapietro perks!

  • Try saying Papapietro Perry Pinot Power 10 X’s FAST?!?!
