Coturri Winery is situated on Sonoma Mountain, above the tiny hamlet of Glen Ellen, in the region know as the Valley of the Moon. It was founded in 1979 by Harry "Red" Coturri and his sons Tony and Phil. Red learned how to make wine during Prohibition and the great depression from his father Enrico, who immigrated to America from Farneta, Italy in 1901. Today, Tony is custodian of the wine made here and remains true to the traditional methods of his predecessors.
For over thirty-five years we have been stewarding terroir-driven wine on Sonoma Mountain, above the tiny hamlet of Glen Ellen in Sonoma County. Our small estate vineyard is comprised primarily of Martini Monte Rosso Zinfandel clones on phylloxera resistant St. George rootstock. The vineyard is dry farmed and head pruned in the traditional Italian goblet style.
Our grapes are never treated with pesticides, fungicides, or herbicides.
We use Indigenous yeast.
We use neutral oak cooperage.
We do not fine or filter.
We do not use SO2 at any point of the winemaking process.
No additions or manipulations of any kind are made. We believe that our wines are a testament to the longevity potential of wines made naturally.
