Founded on the southern edge of Sacramento in 1897, Frasinetti Winery is the oldest family owned winery in the Sacramento Valley. James Frasinetti and wife Rose, planted vineyards of 400 acres and shipped wine by the railroad to the East Coast. When Prohibition struck in 1920s, the winery survived by selling grapes for table use, making “Altar Wine” for the Church, and concentrating on farming. Today, grandsons, Howard and Gary, produce varietal wines with emphasis on oak. They established a restaurant in the old “East Cellar" for banquets and a Grande Gazebo outside for weddings in a beautiful historic setting.
