George Martinelli

Owner / Farmer

George Martinelli, a fourth generation farmer, was born in Sonoma County in 1969. At the age of 10, George was driving a tractor & running an apple crew in the family orchards, which he still manages. Throughout the years he worked with his father learning the art of viticulture. In 2008 George received the Outstanding Young Farmer of the Year Award from the Sonoma County Harvest Fair. These days George works closely with his father and brother in the vineyards as well as being active in the family winery with his sisters and mother. He currently farms his own vineyards & manages others. George is one of the founders of the El Molino High School Foundation that raises money for his alma mater. When he is not working, George enjoys fishing, hunting & camping on our family’s Sonoma Coast Ranch with his family & friends, especially his wife & two daughters.
