In Italian, “Dono dal Cielo” means ‘Gift from Heaven’.
We are following our lifelong passion for that perfect balance of earth, sun and soil. Dono dal Cielo was born in 2002 with our first 6,000 Zinfandel vines planted on 7 acres. Secreted away in the graceful rolling hills of Newcastle, we offer a warm and welcoming atmosphere that invites you to relax and have fun while sampling our handcrafted wines. We want you to feel at home, gather here and cozy up with each other. Take a bottle or a glass outside on the patio or stroll through the vineyard. Bring your children, your friends and your dogs. We welcome your family to become part of our Dono family!
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.
Hours: Saturday & Sunday, 12 – 5 p.m.
