"Mendocino’s oldest winery still in production, Parducci Wine Cellars, celebrated its 85th anniversary with the release of 85—a special cuvée created in honor of John “Mr. Mendocino” Parducci.

Parducci was a champion of the region, and the first to label bottles with “Mendocino County.” The winery was founded by his father and uncle in 1932. Parducci took over head winemaking duties in the 1940s, building the family winery into a well-known brand over several decades. He was also among the first to emphasize varietal wines. He passed away in 2014.
The bottling, created by head winemaker Bob Swain, who is celebrating his 20th anniversary as Parducci’s winemaker, blends “heartland varietals of Mendocino County”—namely Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petite Verdot and Cabernet Franc."
