Bonitata Boutique Wine prides itself on attention to details. Each wine is handcrafted and barrel aged then bottled at the right moment to deliver that special taste to your palate. Our grapes are hand-picked from vineyards located in the Sierra Foothills. The grapes are picked just at the right balance of sugar, pH and acid to produce a very special wine. You can meet the winemaker and ask questions or tour the winery.
Bonitata Boutique Wine is located in the original Bernhard Winery founded in 1874, located at the Bernhard Museum adjacent to the Gold Country Fair Grounds. This historic building is made of stone with two foot thick walls which are partially buried into the hillside. The perfect storage for our hand crafted wines. After enjoying your wine tasting you can take a tour of the rest of the museum. Parking is located at the main museum parking lot just a short walk from the winery. The winery is also available for rent for that special occasion (anniversary, birthday, wedding, etc).
Ciotti Cellars is a small production winery located in Placer County. Small production means we focus on making small lots of ultra-premium wines for your enjoyment. Because of this limited production we’re able to pay extra attention to details creating wines rich in aromas, deep in color and character with velvety finishes. Using only the finest grapes grown in the Placer County / Napa Valley regions we’ve been able to create a little sunshine in a bottle.
Generations after Generations of winemakers have been born in the Ciotti family. As young boys, Giuseppe and Archangelo heard stories of how their Grandfather emigrated from Italy stowed away in a wine barrel to begin a new life in America. As young men they, watched their Grandfather Father and Uncle’s make Hand Crafted Wines as a part of their culture and heritage. Today Ciotti Cellars is committed to making sure that same time honored family tradition continues, carefully cultivating and selecting only quality fruit to make premium hand crafted wine’s to be enjoyed and shared with family and friends.

Why the name Pescatore? Meaning fisherman in Italian, fishing is Dave’s hobby when he’s not busy with the vineyard or winery. In addition, it is Patty’s immigrant Grandma’s maiden name. Nicolina Pescatore immigrated from Naples in the early 1900’s. Grandma always made her own wine. She even kept a carafe of wine in her refrigerator! Our boutique winery produces only about 800 cases of wine a year. We tend each vine ourselves and the grapes are pressed manually in a traditional wooden basket press.
