Once more, Parducci Wine Cellars is in the news for a progressive, aggressive, and effective water-conservation program.
Rick Bakas, blogger of "The Traveling Palate: A Sommelier's Guide to Living Well,"interviews Tim Thornhill, Parducci Chief Operating Officer, and concludes, "California's wine industry can directly impact the severity of future drought problems starting now. A man with no prior wine industry experience motivated by leaving something to his children might just have the solution we've all been hoping for."

“Dgiin is the perfect band to close the 2014 Acoustic Café season,” said Rochelle Loren, Parducci Wine Cellars Director of Hospitality and Events. “They’ve got a great local following and are always fun to dance to.” Based out of Sonoma County, California, the four-piece band revels in diverse musical influences including folk, reggae, funk, and Latin with an emphasis on French-language songs.
Plans for the 2015 Parducci Acoustic Café concert season are already in the works and will include a mix of favorite bands and new acts. “You can find our most up-to-date event details on parducci.com or by following us on Facebook,” said Loren, adding, “Look for some exciting winery events through harvest and the holiday season, too.”
Parducci Wine Cellars and The North Coast Striders invite runners, joggers, and walkers of all ages and abilities Sun, Oct 12, 2014, to the first annual Crush Rush 5K Benefit Run, a community fundraiser event to benefit the Ukiah Unified School District Gardens Program.
The race is sure to be fun—especially during harvest season—as the route will take runners through ripening Petite Sirah, Zinfandel and Cabernet vineyards, two winery crush facilities, the secluded Upper Home Ranch, and Parducci’s famed wetland wildlife preserve. We hope to see you there, either as a participant or to help cheer on the runners. Learn more...
