The Sbragia family history runs deep in the Dry Creek Valley. Ed Sbragia's grandfather came to the valley from Tuscany in 1904, where he worked in wineries, starting at the historic Italian Swiss Colony. Ed's father, Gino, acquired his own vineyards near Healdsburg, growing zinfandel grapes for sale and home winemaking.

"He made excellent wine," says Ed, "and he taught me that making wine is a very natural process - that good grapes and good techniques will always make good red wine." In 2001, Ed created his own label, Sbragia Family Vineyards, to focus on making limited individual lots of wine from grapes grown in select blocks of his favorite vineyards.
