Vineyard History

Fourth generation farmer, Lee Martinelli Jr., and his wife Pamela acquired this very steep piece of property from Bob and Lolita Young in 1999. The Ranch is named for Bob's late wife, Lolita. Lee Jr. planted the hillside with four different grape varietals: Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Syrah, and Zinfandel.
