Papapietro Perry Winery Promotes Winemaking Team

Long-Time Winemaking and Cellar Team Advances

October 26th – (Sonoma County – CALIF.) — Papapietro Perry Winery has restructured and promoted the entire winemaking team, as founding winemaker and co-owner Ben Papapietro moves to the role of executive winemaker, continuing to direct, oversee and advise the entire winemaking process.

Newly named Winemaker Dave Low, who has been Ben Papapietro’s assistant winemaker for decades moves up to assume team leading responsibilities. Tyson Freeman, another long-time cellar employee at the winery, has been promoted to the role of assistant winemaker. Continuing to support the entire team in the cellar is Lucindo Mendez, who has been promoted to cellar master.

“Our philosophy at Papapietro Perry Winery has always been to focus on the singular varietal of Pinot Noir. We employ the same techniques from vintage to vintage to achieve the high quality and consistency for which we have become known,” said Executive Winemaker Ben Papapietro. “That quality and consistency begins with our vineyards and growers, but relies heavily on our winemaking process, our attention to detail, and the execution of this winemaking team. We could not be more pleased with their talent and dedication. After so many years working together, we are more family than colleagues.”

Papapietro Perry Winery is a boutique, family-owned winery located in Sonoma County’s Dry Creek Valley, which specializes in making remarkable, classic Russian River Valley Pinot Noir, as well as a small selection of other varietals such as Zinfandel, Chardonnay and Rosé. Committed to quality for more than twenty years, owners Ben and Yolanda Papapietro and Renae Perry, who began making wine as a hobby in a San Francisco basement along with the late Bruce Perry in 1980, produce small lots of award-winning, critically-acclaimed wines, handmade from harvest to punch down.
