    Michael Pozzan Winery

    Michael Pozzan Zinfandel

    United States, California, Oakville, Napa Valley


    Winery Overview

    "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 in the town of Healdsburg after WWII and planted Zinfandel grapes which he sold to local wineries, though always making sure that he retained a portion of the grapes to make his own wine. Additionally, the Pozzans have roots extending to Piemonte, Italy, where the family still owns the original vineyard 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 Californian wines, with the style of Italian heritage. Michael and Mary Ann founded Michael Pozzan Winery in 1991, based in Oakville, California, in the heart of the Napa Valley. The winery produces six distinct and individual labels: Michael Pozzan, Annabella, Dante, Matthew Joseph, Giapoza, and Sailor's Grave. 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. Annabella wines, named to honor Michael Pozzan’s venerable grandmother, are hand sourced from select vineyards throughout the Sonoma and Napa valleys. The Dante and Matthew Joseph wine collections were inspired by Michael's travels through the Tuscan countryside and are named after Michael and Mary Ann's sons, Michael Dante Pozzan and Matthew Joseph Pozzan. The Giapoza wines celebrate the Pozzan family's newest member, Gianna Pozzan, and are crafted for the family table. Sailor's Grave is a rich red blend inspired by a Wisconsin native known only as, Byron, who helped aid the Allied forces in WWII."


    Select vineyards throughout the Sonoma and Napa valleys


     The soils of the Oakville district are broadly categorized into three types. In the hills, residual soils are created from the breakdown of the various bedrock units. Along the margins of the valley just below the hills, distinct alluvial soils form on the fans composed of material washed down from the adjoining hills during torrential rain events. Along the axial part of the valley where the Napa River flows are fluvial soils, finer grained loam coming from up stream locations and deposited from flood waters
