Winemaker Interview: Julie Pedroncelli of Pedroncelli Winery

Meet Julie Pedroncelli of Pedroncelli Winery in the Dry Creek Valley as part of a series of winemaker interviews I am doing for California Winery Advisor.

Located just northwest of the town of Healdsburg in Sonoma County is the Dry Creek Valley AVA. This valley is approximately 16 miles long and 2 miles wide and is home to more than 60 wineries and 150 winegrowers. The Dry Creek Valley was first settled by Italian immigrants who planted Zinfandel, which the valley is now famous for.

The Pedroncelli family is a fourth-generation family located in the Dry Creek Valley. John (Giovanni) Pedroncelli Sr purchased the vineyards and a small winery in 1927. Today, Pedroncelli Winery is still a family-owned and run business. Third generation family owner Julie Pedroncelli is the VP of Marketing and Brand Ambassador and her husband Ed St. John is the VP of Sales & Marketing. Julie’s father Jim is President of Pedroncelli Winery and two of Julie’s sisters, her brother-in-law and her nephew, who is fourth-generation, are all involved in the winery. Sustainably farmed, Pedroncelli has been producing wine for 90 years and counting.

I recently had a chance to catch up with Julie Pedroncelli and ask her a few questions about her winery. I hope you enjoy our interview.
