PaZa is surrounded by picturesque views of the Sierra Foothills, the Sutter Buttes, and Coastal mountains. So, we welcome folks who bring lunch, or other treats, to stay and relax with a glass, or a bottle, of our award-winning vino. Owners Pamela and Zane Dobson share an over the top enthusiasm for all things related to wine, and especially appreciate the many people who enjoy wine and life. In short – our wine making style is keeping it simple with serious passion!
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.

Popie Wines is a hand crafted boutique winery producing award winning wines. Since 1922, three generations of the Duarte family have worked in the Napa Valley growing high quality grapes that have produced award winning wines. I am the fourth generation Duarte continuing the family growing tradition, here in Placer County, my father (Richard “Popie” Duarte) taught me. 2006 found me completing the cycle, “from soil to bottle”, not just as a grower, but now as a winemaker as well. Over the years I have learned that “wine is truly made in the vineyard”. Our vineyard is family managed, maintained, and sustainably grown, allowing us the control to produce exceptional wines. I am now taking my family heritage to the next step in producing what I hope to be well made enjoyable wines from our Duarte Family Vineyards.
