Cabernet Sauvignon, when you say it or think about it your mouth starts to water and you want it, now. That color that is your first indication that oh yeah this is going to be good. It is the wine of the Valley, it grows well here, the vines are happy and healthy and so we get wonderful wines. It always starts in the vineyard, the beautiful weather, overcast mornings, long mild summer days and warm autumn afternoons allow the fruit to develop rich layered flavors. Winemakers that want to work with the best fruit in the most beautiful vineyards. Winery dogs chasing rabbits while we walk the rows tasting fruit and looking at the bunches and foliage talking about the weather. Tasting the wines in the barrel then the first time opening a bottle from a new vintage and the happiness that the wines bring when we pour them. Everything comes together and it is magic, poetry, love…

Winemaker, Jack Varozza

Varozza Vineyards started in 1913 when Jack’s grandfather, Joseph Varozza, purchased the winery and 38 acres of vineyard on the valley floor of north St. Helena. Joseph divided his time between working the vineyard, which included tilling the ground behind two horses and a plow, and winemaking in the historic gravity feed stone and wood winery established in 1885.
Joseph passed in 1946. His son, Harold, who was born and raised on the property, took over the care of the vineyard but did not continue the winemaking and closed the winery. Jack Varozza also grew up on the property and helped with taking care of the vineyard and always looked forward to re-opening the winery someday.
In 2000 he realized that dream, leased the property from his family, and after 50 years began making wine again. After starting with only 250 cases of Cabernet Sauvignon, Varozza Vineyards now produces Cabernet Sauvignon, Petite Sirah, Sauvignon Blanc, Zinfandel, Cabernet Franc and a proprietary blend, “Bloodline” (comprised of Cabernet Sauvignon and Petite Sirah).
Varozza Vineyards’ production is about 900 cases of single vineyard and 100% estate grown wines. Great wines begin in the love and care of the vineyard - 108 years with four generations of the Varozza family taking care of it. We are carrying on the family winery tradition and bringing in the next generation as Jason Varozza joins Varozza Vineyards.
