Sbragia Family Vineyards winemaker Adam Sbragia continues his family’s legacy in Dry Creek Valley, launching his own brand, Home Field Red Blend. Produced from the 2016 vintage, the debut wine is crafted from five grape varieties grown in six different vineyards: Gino’s Estate Zinfandel, La Promessa Estate Zinfandel, Teldeschi Petite Sirah, Forchini Carignane, Andolsen Cabernet and Home Ranch Estate Merlot.

“Born and raised in Dry Creek Valley, I’ve explored every vineyard in every corner of my Home Field to create a modern wine that expresses purity of fruit and my family’s long winemaking history,” remarks Adam.

“I want to extend the winemaking tradition that my great-grandfather started when he came to Dry Creek Valley from Italy in 1904. Being a 4th generation winemaker, I grew up in the vineyards, riding a tractor with my grandfather Gino and pruning and tasting grapes with my father, Ed Sbragia,” comments Adam. “I’ve been making wine side by side with my dad for a dozen years. It’s exciting to take what I’ve learned and make a wine that’s all my own.”
