What Could Be More Pilgrims at Plymouth Rock Than....
 

"The Immigrant" from Donati


100% Merlot in Steel Tank Fermentation with Oak Aging.
Aromas of cherry, boysenberry, tobacco and white pepper
lead into a layered palate of mocha, raspberry,
and cranberry sauce wrapped in a complex oak structure.
Solid finish closing with a touch of black pepper.

About Donati: 
As a young boy, Ron Donati grew up in South San Francisco,
the son of a first generation Italian-American family. One of his fondest memories was
the sights and smells of his grandfather making wine in his basement. Like most Italian immigrants,
Albino Donati made his own wine for the family dinner table. As an adult, Ron became a successful entrepreneur with a penchant for making quality products that were attainable to all, not just a select few. This same passion serves as the foundation and guiding mission of
Donati Family Vineyardtoday.
It is our goal to produce wines of exceptional quality regardless of budget.

About the (Woman) Winemaker: 
Briana Heywood joined the Donati Family Vineyard team in 2016 as Head Winemaker.
She has been involved in the wine industry for the past 10 years and gained her knowledge primarily through hands-on experience. Prior to starting at Donati, Briana was Enologist at JLohr Wines in Paso Robles for the past 7 years, along with prior internships atEberle Winery and Gallo Vineyards. She earned her Enology and Wine Business degrees from Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo, in 2009.
