ABOUT THE WINERY
Donati Family Vineyards was started in 1998 by Ron and his three sons; Matt, Mark and Brad. Ron Donati grew up in San Francisco and is the son of a first generation Italian-American family.
They acquired land in the still-young AVA of Paso Robles, which is ideal for growing the Bordeaux Red varietals that they specialize in. The core of Donati Family Vineyard’s award- winning wine portfolio has always been focused on Bordeaux varieties. These include Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, as well as high-quality Meritage-style blends, in addition to our family reserve wines that include Ezio Cabernet and The Immigrant, named after Ron’s father and grandfather, respectively.
