The Lanza Family brand is about taking our history and tradition through winemaking/grape growing and moving to the next level of quality and experience. We’ve taken 25+ years of knowledge and experience and made the absolute best of our vineyards.

What makes this wine different from WVW Petite? Shoot thinning the crops, leaving one cane per spur. Multiple thinning passes to adjust and manage crop size. Extended barrel/bottle time.
Another topic of discussion about Petite Sirah is that it’s become the grape/wine that Suisun Valley is known for. The grape grows exceptionally well in this micro-climate and the wines made from the grapes are fantastic.
