The third generation of the Sangiacomo family, Mike, Steve and Mia, grew up on the ranch and learned the ropes early in life, tagging along on ranch rounds with their father, uncles Bob and Buck, and Aunt Lorraine. Today, Michael and his wife Whitney, Steve and his wife Connie, and Mia and her husband Mike Pucci work hard to ensure ever increasing levels of quality in the vineyards and that the family legacy is passed on to future generations.
Grapes from Roberts Road Vineyard are amongst the most prestigious that the Sangiacomo family cultivate. Wines made from these grapes are Burgundian in style, rich and delicate with a supple mouthfeel.
The growing season is long, slow, and even, making for good balance. The vineyard stays in the fog until mid-day and it is always one of the last vineyards to be harvested.
Bordered by Copeland Creek on the north, the soil is very well drained with silty gravel. The vineyard is highly unusual in that it has two watersheds, with a meandering creek that fans left and then right. The southern end of the property drains to the San Pablo Bay while the northern section drains to the Russian River.
First planted in 1999 to Chardonnay and Pinot Noir clones, today fourteen different combinations of clone and rootstock are in the vineyard. Over twenty different wineries source grapes from Roberts Road Vineyard with over a dozen vineyard-designated wines.
