Papapietro Perry winery began in a garage in San Francisco with friends Bruce Perry and Ben Papapietro who took up winemaking as a hobby. Along with their wives, Renae and Yolanda, they shared a love of Pinot Noir and wanted to be able to drink it every day. The only way they could afford to do that was to make it themselves. And so the adventure began.
Ben and Bruce had both made wine with their grandfathers, and like them, they had a talent for it. After retiring from their day jobs, they succumbed to the appeals from family and friends to start a winery. Renae and Yolanda joined and made it a family affair. Renae runs Winery Operations and Yolanda handles our distributors.
