Martorana Family Winery
Secluded out West Dry Creek Road, Martorana Family Winery, on the banks of the Dry Creek, is certified organic and has an obvious and admirable respect for the land with its clever, knowledgeable, non-intrusive winery building and the way the winery is placed on their estate, facing due east. Not visible from many angles, the winery, when revealed at the end of the vineyard-hidden driveway, proves to be lovely and almost startling in its blend into the landscape. Winemaker/Proprietor Gio Martorana grows all his own grapes – and the winery is completely certified organic. Gio’s motto: “Little guy makes good wine!” He also makes great estate grown olive oil: Olio de Gio. The Wine Club, Club Creekside, offers great opportunities and wines to a very small, lucky group of 65 members- “little”, indeed! Across from the stone winery is a great picnic area and a bocce court, steps away from the Dry Creek and surrounded by the estate vineyards.
Martorana visitors please call ahead for an appointment; they are happy to welcome you. Martorana is open during special events and is planning quite a full calendar of fun in the summer months. This is a small, only 1K cases produced, family run operation and their warmth and traditions are evident. Be on the look out for their best Winery Ambassador Dog, Sunny- what a doll! He and Gio make the perfect pair to welcome you to Martorana.
Here’s looking at you, kids.
