Welcome to MoniClaire Vineyards

Winemaking has been a source of pride and livelihood for our family for over 100 years. Beginning in Italy with my grandfather and continuing today with our daughters, we now have four generations that have enjoyed the rigors and pleasure of grape growing and winemaking.

Today, our winery is located on the bench land of the Dry Creek Valley near Healdsburg, California, and is named for our two daughters, Monica and Claire. Our vineyards are head pruned in the Italian tradition, the crop is managed to insure intense varietal flavors.

We strive to create hand crafted wines that express both the characteristics of our land, as well as our stylistic preferences.
