Dewitt Family Wines Llc.

DEWITT FAMILY WINES, LLC

Wine making, for the DeWitt’s, began in 1994.  Our proximity to South Philadelphia, home of the Italian “home brew” provided us with resources for home winemaking.  Mentored by Ed’s long-time Barber and friend, Francis Gigliotti, a passion for winemaking began.  In addition, Ed took classes at the Philadelphia Wine School, operated by Keith Wallace, a well know wine critic and educator. Volunteer work, at two New Jersey wineries, added to the knowledge base with hands-on experience. These activities were followed by trips to N. Nevada, our current home, coordinated with visits to Napa and Sonoma County.  Private tours and tastings with renowned wine makers helped us cultivate our skills.  After moving to Nevada in 2006 and making two vintages, at a small winery in N. Nevada, we networked our way into California.  With the assistance of our grape grower, Ron Siegemund (aCURE eSTATE) we were introduced to Michall Pendleton, owner and winemaker at Pendleton Estate Winery.  Michall, graciously, welcomed us to the land of Artisan Winemaking.  Michall, too, had learned his craft by working at local wineries and soaking up knowledge along the way.  We produced our first three vintages at Pendleton.

In 2013, we moved our production to Medlock Ames Winery, in Healdsburg California.  In 2014 we obtained our own 17/20 California license and US Federal Basic Permit.  All our wines are currently Produced and Bottled by DEWITT FAMILY WINES.

In 2017 we began working with a small Pinot Noir grower in the Russian River Valley. The vineyard is owned by Ron and Sandy DeNatale of Healdsburg, CA.  It is located on Eastside Road and averages 2.5 – 3.0 tons of fruit. We found the fruit to be very high quality and have agreed to continue our relationship for the foreseeable future. This area of the Russian River Valley tends to produce fruit that is slightly higher in alcohol with fruit forward wines having great complexity and depth of flavor. We look forward to bottling our first vintage in January of 2019.

We continue to work with the Siegemund family (aCURE eSTATE) for our Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon which we are now blending, annually, with Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot or Syrah purchased from one of two Sonoma County growers depending on fruit availability each year. We add these grapes in order to add complexity and tannin to our Cabernet Sauvignon base wine.

We continue to control all aspects of our wine business.  We work with our growers to maximize the quality of our fruit.  We transport to the winery and oversee the entire fermentation process.  We select our own commercial yeasts and nutrients to be used for each varietal. We select and buy our oak from Barrel Builders of St. Helena, CA.  We use a combination of new and used oak.  We use 36-month seasoned Pennsylvania American Oak for our Cabernet Sauvignon and French Oak for our Pinot Noir.

We coordinate the bottling schedule with Medlock Ames, yearly.  We buy our cork and capsules from Lafitte Cork & Capsule of Napa, CA.  Our glass is American made and bottles are now silk screen printed by Monvera Glass Décor of Richmond, CA.  Our wine is truly Artisan as we use no bulk wine or chemical additives. In 2020, we will bottle approximately 170 cases of Pinot Noir and 800 of our Cabernet Sauvignon.  We hope you continue to enjoy our wines as much as we have enjoyed making them for you!

Marie & Ed DeWitt
