Shenandoah Valley

Our Story

With strong Italian roots and a well-established reputation as premium wine-grape growers, Di Stasio Vineyards is a well known brand in the industry. The story began more than 100 years ago as a part of the original Esola Ranch in Amador County’s Shenandoah Valley. In early 1900, Giacomo Esola, (Isola, the original Italian surname), came from Italy and acquired the property in 1911with the purpose of building a life in America. Our grandmother, Jennie (Esola) Lavezzo was the eldest of Giacomo's eight children and matriarch of our family.

The Di Stasio name was added when Estelle Lavezzo married John Di Stasio Sr, and now, four generations later, their son John and wife Michelle Di Stasio continue to farm the 108-acre vineyard sustainably. The winery continues the family's commitment to the property and is a natural extension of the farming operation. Together with daughter and son-in-law Rachae & Joe Vila, Di Stasio Vineyards continues to be a family operation, reflecting 100 years of continuity and a labor of love honoring the work of prior generations.
