Picchetti Winery

El Dorado

Our Story

The Picchetti brothers, Vincenzo and Secondo, bought 160 acres on Montebello Ridge for $1,500. According to the California History Center, the Picchetti Family named the ridge Montebello and were the first family to plant vineyards. The first grapes planted were Zinfandel, Carignane and Petite Sirah. At first, the brothers only sold the grapes to local wineries, but in 1896 they decided to make their own wine, becoming one of the early wineries in California.
