About This Winery
Napa - Enjoy a taste of gracious Italian hospitality at our charming Tasting Room nestled in the Napa Valley.
Don’t expect fast cars or French Champagne at Andretti Winery. After almost 50 years on the track, the famed race-car driver has slowed down some — but not much! Watch out if he is in residence at the charming Tuscan-style Andretti Winery Villa or tasting room. Mr. Andretti and Joseph E. Antonini, who was President, Chairman and CEO of Kmart (one of Mario’s major sponsors), formed Andretti Wine Group (AWG Limited), a publicly traded company, to acquire property and build the Andretti Winery.
The entrance to the Villa lies across a stone-tiled piazza with a central fountain featuring a Renaissance cherub. Rock walls, courtyards and gardens surround the Villa, along with towering pine trees. Enter the cozy, brightly colored tasting room to taste their wide offerings of wine and explore the gift shop, which has an extensive clothing and accessory area. Their floors are of stained concrete, scattered with oriental rugs.
Bob Pepi, a veteran winemaker and grape-grower, makes Andretti’s wines. He was instrumental in developing the “two-hearted-canopy” trellis system that is now used throughout the industry. The winery produces a wide range of California varietal wines including Sauvignon Blanc, Cabernet, Syrah, Merlot and Chardonnay, as well as some other unique offerings. Try the Napa Valley Zinfandel-Primitivo Blend, the classic Sangiovese or the Pinot Grigio. Also available is a nice Port.↑ Less
