Additional information

Scotto Family Wines

Dominic Scotto emigrated to America from the island of Ischia in the bay of Naples in 1903 and worked as a ship’s caulker on the east coast, making wine in his spare time. The family winemaking tradition was passed from generation to generation and it’s now Anthony Scotto, Dominic’s grandson who runs the family company.

We have been working with the Lodi-based Scotto Family Wines now for several years and have been delighted by how well their wines have been received – with an emphasis on bright fruit expression and minimal use of oak. Media attention has also been growing, with the Old Vine Zinfandel appearing on Jancis Robinson’s Purple Pages website and inspiring this comment from Simon Woods: “Why aren’t there more wines like this from California?… It’s hard to think of a wine business that wouldn’t benefit from such a wine.”

Production

Fermented in stainless steel and aged for two years in French oak.
