In 1895, Samuele Sebastiani emigrated from Italy to America with a strong work ethic and a drive to create his own opportunities. After nine years of hard work hauling paving stones, he saved enough money to purchase winemaking equipment. “L’americano”, as his family in Italy called him, successfully applied winemaking techniques taught to him by his parents to produce his first 500 gallons of wine. Samuele quickly established himself as a powerful grape grower and winemaker. His success reached far beyond the vineyard. An immensely successful and innovative businessman, Samuele was industrious even throughout Prohibition and the Great Depression.
As a member of the fourth generation of Sebastianis in the wine industry, Donny Sebastiani, proudly offers this Chardonnay and Petite Sirah as a tribute to his great-grandfather, Samuele.
