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.
