Tony Coturri is a 3rd generation California winemaker, a Jazz aﬁcionado, a motorcycle enthusiast and an outspoken advocate of natural winemaking. The Coturri winery has never and will never use grapes treated with pesticides, fungicides or herbicides. The story of this dynamic winery began when Enrico Coturri immigrated to America with $10 in his pocket. Upon arriving in SF he worked as a barrel cooper and helped rebuild the city after the devastating earthquake in 1906. Enrico taught his son Harry “Red” Coturri the Italian winemaking methods that he brought with him from the village of Farneta, Italy. Red founded the Coturri winery in ’79 with his sons Tony and Phil. Tony has been making wine since ’64, he now runs the winery and is in the process of teaching his son, Nic, the craft. Sandocino is a non-vintage blend of 32% 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Mendocino County, 32% 2006 Syrah Napa Valley, 32% 2006 Merlot Sonoma Valley & 4% 2004 Zinfandel Sonoma Valley. It resembles a harmonious blend of varietals and vintages that result in a wine that drinks well by its self or with food. The wine has a good acidity that could allow further aging.
