Papapietro Perry Presents...

One of our favorite places to visit is the Papapietro Perry Winery in California. They’ve been a supporter of the New York International Wine Auction each year since 2008. In fact, their 2006 Papapietro Perry Winery, Russian River Valley, Leras Family Vineyards Pinot Noir was featured as a dinner wine for the 2008 auction. They are supporting us again this year with a 2007 Papapietro Perry Winery Pinot Noir produced from their Mendocino County, Anderson Valley, Charles Vineyard source.

Co-owner and winemaker Ben Papapietro explains what makes this bottle so special. Their attention to detail and superb instincts have brought the Papapietro Perry Winery worldwide acclaim. The stock for this Pinot Noir is sourced from Charles Vineyard, located in the Southeast part of Boonville along the Anderson Creek in the Anderson Valley in Mendocino County. What makes this an ideal location for Pinot Noir is its location; the Anderson Valley opens to the ocean so the cool coastal weather influences can cause as much as 50-degree fluctuations in temperature in a single day. The vineyard is meticulously tended and contains clones 114, 115, 777 and Pommard on three different rootstocks. The 2007 growing season was one of best in years. This vintage promises to go down in history as providing some of the best wines that Papapietro Perry Winery has ever produced.

Thanks to Papapietro Perry Winery for their generosity, and another fine choice for NYIWA.

“The NYIWA is one of the most unique, well-organized and – most of all – fun charity wine auctions I participate in around the country. Arc Herkimer is also one of the most well-run and impressive charity organizations I have been privileged to associate with. Arc Herkimer provides incredibly important services, and delivers them year-round. Every dollar raised at the NYIWA is going to a worthy organization to help those in need.The wine tasting and dinner during the live auction are both not to be missed. Some of the finest limited production wines from New York and California are open during the tasting and dinner. The live auction itself contains some of the hardest-to-find, one-of-a-kind wine lots I have witnessed in charity auctions large and small around the U.S.”
