Meet the Farmers: Sangiacomo Family Vineyard

Jun 17, 2014
Sangiacomo Family Vineyard Vineyard: Sangiacomo Vineyards Farmers: Mike and Steve Sangiacomo Variety: Chardonnay Landmark Wine: Overlook Chardonnay, Damaris Chardonnay, and Kiser Chardonnay For three generations, the Sangiacomo family has been farming the rich Sonoma Valley soil. Purely dedicated to farming, the Sangiacomo family put an intense focus on their farming techniques. Built on a handshake in the vineyard, Landmark has been working closely with this family since the 1990s. Sangiacomos have always been connected to the land – especially through family. Beginning in Genoa, Vittorio Sangiacomo voyaged to America on the advice of his father and got his first job at age 17 in the vegetable fields at Bay Farm Island in Alameda County. In 1927, he was able to purchase a 52-acre fruit tree ranch in Sonoma – which is the where their Home Ranch is today. In 1969, the second generation of Sangaicomos began switching the planting from fruit trees to grape vines. By the 1980s, the conversation was complete.
