Join Winemakers Bob Swain, Mark Beaman and estate proprietors, the Thornhill Family, Saturday, September 29th to celebrate Parducci’s 80th year of legendary winemaking. We’ll mark the occasion with exceptional food, rare flights of library wines, entertainment and breathtaking vistas from our Upper Home Ranch Vineyard. During our romantic celebration we will reveal details of a soon-to-be-crafted, small production wine from the 80th vintage.

The intimate dinner at the Upper Home Ranch Vineyards overlooking the Ukiah Valley will be catered by award-winning diVine Catering from Healdsburg with a menu showcasing the season’s bounty from Parducci’s organic garden paired with wines grown on our estate.
