Zio Tony Ranch

Russian River Valley

Five generations of the Martinelli family have grown grapes in California, and we are lucky to have Martinelli Winery & Vineyards as a neighbor. This property, planted in 1990, was formerly an apple orchard belonging to Lee Martinelli Sr.’s uncle Tony Bondi—hence our name for it, “La Pommeraie.” In keeping with its past purpose, Zio Tony Ranch grows grapes that make fruit-forward Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Benovia has been purchasing grape from The Zio Tony Ranch since 2006
