Patti Fetzer is producing wine from her Patianna Organic Vineyards, 126 prime acres stretching along the Russian River in Hopland, Mendocino County. Patianna's inspiration comes from the traditions of the Fetzer family, pioneers in organic and biodynamic viticulture. Experience taught Patti that exceptional quality in wine is achieved when the land, the farmer and the winemaker operate in harmony. The flavor, structure and texture of Patianna's wine express terroir and reflect progressive, organic and biodynamic farming techniques, practices based on a broad knowledge of and deep respect for the cycles of nature.
Patianna approaches winegrowing through lessons learned from Patti's father, Barney Fetzer, who often said, "Many footprints in the vineyard show that the vines are well-cared for." At Patianna Organic Vineyards, the footprints belong to Patti, her husband and General Manager Gregg Hileman, Winemaker Mike Lee, Vineyard Foreman Horacio Ortega and his field crew, abundant indigenous wildlife - resident goats, sheep and flocks of chickens patrolling for insect pests. Keen observation guides grape growing at Patianna, and farming constantly adjusts to the conditions of the vines, soil and season.
