A Tradition Begins With Two Barrels

She wanted to make the baby a blanket

He was secretly planning to make them all a wine

But no one knew that they were going to start a winery. 

And yet, we realized we were in a moment we wanted to honor and commemorate. Making wine is something we do together year after year—a purple-footed rite of passage—a ritual performed in gratitude for all we have enjoyed and endured.

Every family has traditions. Some of them are more formal than others, but they all celebrate togetherness—a connection with those who came before us, those gathered presently, and those we welcome in the future. Nothing on this earth marks the time quite like a wine.

So this is our tradition.

With two barrels, one ton of fruit, and a little help from our friends, we launched Puppione Family Wines in 2017 with the wine made to welcome our daughter into the world. With each vintage, we chronicle our family stories and capture them in cork and bottle for all to appreciate for the years to come.

When opening these wines with others, you create community in a moment. It is wine the way we like it, made with those we love most. It is our family tradition and we invite you to join in with every bottle.

Welcome to Puppione Family Wines.
