Peirano Estate Vineyards

Peirano Estate Vineyards Welcome to Peirano Estate Vineyards. Giacomo Peirano arrived in San Francisco in 1879 from Genoa, Italy. In 1881, he began farming in Lodi, and year by year he gained a place for himself pioneering vineyard and orchard development. Planted in the early 1800's, Peirano Estate was one of the first vineyards in Lodi. Located in the heart of the Lodi Appellation, the 300 acre estate consists of Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and perhaps the largest single block of old, head-trained, natural rooted Zinfandel left in California. Beginning with the hard work and inspiration of Giacomo Peirano, five generations have grown and harvested grapes from our vineyard for over 100 consecutive years. Knowing that great wines must begin with the finest of grapes, it has always been our belief that wine should reflect the character of the fruit and the land.

  Autumn's Blush
Our Autumn's Blush show off the true characters of a White Cabernet Sauvignon by coming alive with a cornucopia of fresh fruits - raspberries, strawberries, peaches and melons. While it may be fruity on the front palate, it has a subtle, off-dry finish. A great wine for picnics, bar-b-ques or just for sipping on it's own
The vibrant rose colors entice the eye, while aromas of violets and berries invite a sip. Flavors of red berries, cranberries, rose petals and violets dance on the palate, leading to a lingering finish. The whole profile of this wine reminds one of a simpler time in the hills above 19th century Genoa, when good wine was enjoyed with fresh foods, good friends and good conversation.
  Cabernet Sauvignon
Estate grown, these 26-year-old Cabernet Sauvignon vines are grown on a Geneva Double Curtain trellis system [GDC]. This labor intensive system divides the canopy of fruit both horizontally and vertically which exposes the fruit to increased sunlight and enhances the fruit components. The system was developed to get rid of its typical vegetative characteristics. The fruit was hand picked on October 8, 1999 at 25 brix.
  Cabernet Sauvignon
This 100% Cabernet Sauvignon come from our 29-year-old vines on the estate. This wine’s aromas are a compendium of dark fruit – blackberry, black raspberry, black currant – with elements of anise, cedar and root beer. A sip fills the mouth with blackberry pie, black licorice and tea, while maintaining absolute dryness and firm tannins. It is ready to drink now, as well as structured enough to age gracefully for the next 5 to 8 years.
Our chardonnay rings forth with a pleasant floral bouquet. A fine balance of acidity marries with honey dew melon, kiwi and tropical fruits to please the palate. The lingering finish shows off the fruit of the vineyard and a touch of light oak.
Grown on our estate in the heart of the Lodi Appellation, the fruit for this Chardonnay was hand selected and hand harvested. The aromas of vanilla & cream, along with peaches and bananas, entice a sip. The mouth fills with peaches, yellow apple, and lime blossom, while flavors of vanilla, cream and caramel round out the wine and leaves a lingering finish.
  Old Vine Zinfandel
The pleasant purple-red color of our flagship wine catches the eye, as you lift to follow the nose of cherry and cedar wood scents. Ripe cherries on the palate fill the mouth with this full-bodied Zinfandel. Balancing the fruit are hints of oak and light spice, which all contribute to a lengthy finish, inviting another sip. Received a Gold Award from the New World International Wine Competition and a Silver Award from the Los Angeles County Fair.
  Old Vine Zinfandel
The deceptively subtle aromas of this wine combine dark plum, licorice, anise, black tea and cherry tobacco. In the mouth, the palate is wrapped in a velvety mix of plum, bay leaf, cherry and anise, with smooth, chiseled tannins, leading to a lengthy, almost breathless finish. This is a wine for great food, friends and conversation, or an intimate meal for two by a flickering fire. Whichever your pleasure, our Old Vine Zinfandel will make it memorable.
  Petite Sirah
Ripe, dark fruits tempt the senses. The palate is filled with ripe blackberry, dark cherry and firm tannins. This is a wine that can please now, as well as age out for many years to come.
  Primo Zin
Our 1999 vintage explodes wth forward ripe cherries and allspcie which carries through to a palate of warm cherry pie, cranberry and a hint of cinnamon bark. This nicely balanced and easy-drinking zin is a perfect compliment to a variety of foods, most notably pastas, pork and fowl.
  Sauvignon Blanc
follows through to a palate of melons and a refreshing finish of citrus fruit.
  Sauvignon Blanc
This Sauvignon Blanc shows that Lodi can produce that wonderful ripe Gooseberry flavor that most people think you can only get from New Zealand. In addition, background notes of citrus with a tinge of grass round out the palate to invite another sip. Best when served lightly chilled, so the flavors come fully through, it is a great accompaniment to grilled fish, chicken and summer vegetables.
Intensely purple in color, this full-bodied wine releases lots of fruit and sweet smoke on the nose. The mouth filling flavors of ripe berries are balanced with dark spices and oak. Lingering pleasantly on the finish, this wine has plenty of youthful tannins, which are easy to drink now and for several years to come. Received Silver Awards from the following: San Diego National Wine Competition, Riverside International Wine Competition, West Coast Wine Competition, New World International Wine Competition.
The aromas penetrate your sense, with black fruits, chocolate, licorice and smoky tones. The mouth fills with a mix of cherries, dark plums, cocoa and toasty smoke, while the tannins round out the palate without intruding. This Shiraz is great with all kinds of grilled fare, or enjoy it after dinner with a double chocolate brownie and a nice cigar.
  Six Clones Merlot
A merlot of great depth with forward sweet wood aromas and multiple layers of fruit which follow through to the palate. Strawberry, cherries, spicy cranberry dried fruit and a light toast grace one’s palate. The use of predominately French oak leads to a soft, yet noticeable finish.
  Six Clones Merlot
Peirano Estate Vineyards’ Merlot is produced from 6 different clones, or sub-varieties, of Merlot grown on the estate. Our Six Clones Merlot leads with aromas of currant, cranberry and violet, with hints of toast, coffee and vanilla. The mouth is filled with an array of flavors, including cherry, sweet fruit, toast, anise and cinnamon, while supple tannins leave a pleasing finish on the palate.
  'The Other' Red Wine
Fermenting at cool temperatures, to preserve all of the aromas in the berries, we let the wine age for only 6 months in all neutral barrels, which helps slightly concentrate the flavors without overwhelming the wine with oak. The wine was then filtered and bottled, and allowed to rest just long enough to let it blossom forth with the flavors of spring and summer – honeysuckle, jasmine almond blossom.
Peach, tangerine and floral notes in the aroma lead to a palate of peach, apricot, citrus peel and blossom, with just a hint of vanilla. The balance of fruit, acid and alcohol lead to a refreshing finish. We suggest serving this wine at 57-60 degrees, to allow the full characters of Viognier to shine through.
