Michael Pozzan Winery


The Winery's History

Michael Pozzan Winery is owned and operated by Michael and Mary Ann Pozzan, both natives of California. Michael was born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area, but spent his summer months with his grandparents on their 35 acre vineyard estate in Sonoma County. Michael's grandfather purchased the land after WWII and planted Zinfandel grapes, which he sold to local wineries. He always made sure that he retained a portion of the grapes to make his own wine. It was here that Michael learned from his grandfather the art of making and caring for wine. With roots extending to Piedmont, Italy, Michael's family has been in the wine business since the mid 1800's, and still owns the original property that Michael's great grandfather planted over 100 years ago. Michael has benefited greatly from his family's experience and expertise, and has continued the tradition by creating fine wines here in California.

Michael Pozzan winery was founded in 1991 and is based in Oakville, California, in the heart of the Napa Valley. The winery currently produces 35,000 cases a year and distributes its wine throughout the United States in selected markets. The wine is sold under two labels, Michael Pozzan and Dante. In the fall of 2000 the winery will introduce its newest creation, Marianna, which is a blend of four different varieties made in the Bordeaux style.

The Dante Wine Collection, which includes a Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Chardonnay, was inspired by Michael's travels through the Tuscan countryside. They are made in the Italian style with well-balanced fruit and nice acid, which allows the wines to match well with a variety of foods.

The Michael Pozzan Reserve wines, produced from grapes grown in the Napa and Sonoma regions, are of the finest quality and have won numerous medals and awards, competing against other premium wines from California, Europe, and Australia. The collection includes a Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Sangiovese, Syrah, and Chardonnay.

Our winery is committed to producing fine wines that represent quality and value. Michael Pozzan wines can be enjoyed with good food, family, friends and all who share the love of wine.
