Giusti Ranch & Vineyards
150 years ago the Giusti family immigrated from San Pelligrinetto, Italy to Sonoma County. It was then that the farming tradition began here in Sonoma County. Today, the legacy continues and has grown from where it began with olives and grapes transitioning over the years to prunes, cherries, apples and now back to its roots with grapes and olives.
In 2000 the family planted 9 of its remaining 22 acre Russian River Appellation ranch with clones 777, 667 and 115 Pinot Noir.
The family currently sells most of their grapes to the prestigious Kosta Browne Winery under the Giusti Ranch Vineyard designate. While the majority of the fruit from the Giusti Vineyard is sold to Kosta Browne, select rows are maintained for the family label, Via Giusti Wines.
Via Giusti Wines
Via Giusti Wines is a limited production artisan winery, originally producing Russian River Valley Estate Pinot Noir and has now grown to include Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir and Carneros-Sonoma County Vermentino to its family of wines.
In 2009 Via Giusti's inaugural production was only 26 cases, increasing for 2011 and 2012 vintages to 85 cases, and now to over 500 cases in 2015, continuing to grow each year.
