Sodaro Estate Winery was founded in 1998 by Don and Deedee Sodaro. Rooted in a deep love of agriculture, its inception was drawn from Don’s lifelong passion for farming, which began at age 10 on his father’s land in Illinois. Among the quiet of the countryside Don found endless tranquility, and in its bounty he developed a profound appreciation for the art of growing fruit. Decades later, after launching a successful chain of inns across America, Don purchased property in Napa Valley. He hired an experienced vineyard manager and set out to build a world-class vineyard in an area now known as Coombsville AVA, revered for its exceptional Cabernet Sauvignon.
