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. He always made sure that he retained a portion of the grapes to make his own wine. With roots extending to Piemonte, Italy, Michael’s 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 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 wine is sold under four labels, Michael Pozzan, Annabella, Dante, and Matthew Joseph. Michael’s other successful label is, “Sailor’s Grave” which is inspired by a Wisconsin native, Byron who helped aid the Allied forces in WWII. The tattooed man on the label of this wine is of Byron’s body and they represent the road map of past adventures, symbolizing the struggles and hardships he underwent in a life that few could imagine.
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 is named to honor Michael Pozzan’s venerable grandmother, Annabella wines 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.
