About Martinelli Winery

The Martinelli family has grown grapes in Sonoma County since the 1880’s. Our primary goal has always been hand-crafting quality wines that are born in our estate vineyards. The vineyards are hand-farmed meticulously and each wine is limited in production.

The primary goal of Martinelli Winery has always been hand-crafting quality wines that are born in our estate vineyards, using only our favorite blocks for each vineyard designated wine. We have a commitment to quality and have never offered for sale a wine that we felt did not live up to the reputation and expectations of its label. We also try to maintain a sense of consistency with each vintage, while still allowing the true nature of the vineyard to shine through. These wines are small production and each vineyard is hand farmed meticulously, producing only the finest quality fruit.

We use a hands-off approach during the winemaking process, allowing the wine to go through a set of natural processes with minimal intervention, although this approach actually requires more expertise and attention from the winemaking team.

Our wines are fermented with naturally occurring yeasts, which enhance the flavor and texture of the wine. The wines are kept in barrel for 10 months, are unfiltered and unfined, and clarified only by racking before bottling.

Family friendly winery. They make you feel at home and they are all very approachable people just like their wines. Would go back there again.

The experience was more than 5 stars. We love Martinelli wines but after the tasting, we loved everything about the wine, the winery and the employees. Everyone was so friendly and knowledgeable. We were lucky enough to have Tom as our host. What a fantastic experience! We were in Sonoma and Napa for a total of 6 days and our Martinelli tasting was by far, our favorite experience.

Baler Bar VIP tasting on 7/20/17 3:00 PM

My husband and I booked the VIP tasting based upon our desire to taste those wines. It was an amazing option! We loved so many of the wines. Loved the family history peppered throughout. We were very lucky to have Sara as our guide. She was wonderful! We left happy wine club members, plus our order!

This experience was just ok. Not a lot of information shared unless we asked. Didn't get much insight into the wines, the vineyard or the anything else. It didn't draw me in, the way that other vineyards and or tours have done.

Excellent array of wines tasted with good explanation of history of wine and winemaking at Martinelli, and current winemaking philosophy. Shared some excellent library wines. Cheese/nut accompaniment paired well. Accommodated shipping needs and scheduling for purchases.

Brandi was AWESOME! I loved the wines chosen and even the ones that after meeting our group, she decided to try some others based on our likes. This was extremely nice and made our experience even better. Brandi was knowledgeable about the wines and the history of the Martinelli family and we enjoyed the quaint, atmosphere and privacy of our wine tasting booked!

Did a private library tasting with Julianna Martinelli. We liked their wines prior to the tasting, but after spending two hours with her tasting wines and learning the history of Martinelli, I can't recommend it highly enough. Very gracious and hospitable family owned place!
