The dream of owning a vineyard for Charles and Helen Bacigalupi became a reality in the early 1950s when the couple purchased 121-acres on Westside Road. In the beginning, Charles cared for 16-acres of existing vineyards which included Zinfandel, Mission, Golden Chaslis and Muscat. In 1964, Charles planted Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, the first well documented plantings of Pinot Noir in the Russian River Valley. From there, Charles and his son John worked alongside each other, perfecting their viticulture techniques and expanding the vineyards. Nearly 60 years and three generations later, the family along with winemaker Ashley Hertzberg is leading the winemaking endeavor showcasing wines under their own label at their Healdsburg tasting room and sourcing fruit to some of Sonoma and Napa’s most sought after names.
