Wine making, for the DeWitt’s, began in 1994. Our proximity to South Philadelphia, home of the Italian “home brew” provided us with resources for home winemaking. Mentored by Ed’s long-time Barber and friend, Francis Gigliotti, a passion for winemaking began. In addition, Ed took classes at the Philadelphia Wine School, operated by Keith Wallace, a well know wine critic and educator. Volunteer work, at two New Jersey wineries, added to the knowledge base with hands-on experience. These activities were followed by trips to N. Nevada, our current home, coordinated with visits to Napa and Sonoma County. Private tours and tastings with renowned wine makers helped us cultivate our skills. After moving to Nevada in 2006 and making two vintages, at a small winery in N. Nevada, we networked our way into California. With the assistance of our grape grower, Ron Siegemund (aCURE eSTATE) we were introduced to Michall Pendleton, owner and winemaker at Pendleton Estate Winery. Michall, graciously, welcomed us to the land of Artisan Winemaking. Michall, too, had learned his craft by working at local wineries and soaking up knowledge along the way. We produced our first three vintages at Pendleton. In 2013, we moved our production to Medlock Ames Winery, in Healdsburg California. In 2014 we obtained our own 17/20 California license and US Federal Basic Permit. All our wines are currently Produced and Bottled by DEWITT FAMILY WINES.
