They founded Lachini Vineyards on time-honored principles such as tradition with innovation, love of family and friends, living one’s passions, and enjoyment of fine wines & foods crafted with farm to table freshness.
The patient pursuit to craft world-class Pinot Noir
In 2001 Lachini Vineyards began producing limited, ultra-premium, single vineyard Pinot Noirs. Driven by a yearning for the old world and a passion for Pinot Noir Ron and Marianne Lachini planted their first vine in 1997. Their patient pursuit to produce world-class Pinot Noir and establish a way of life was realized in 2001 with the release of their first vintage. They have embraced a patient pursuit to produce world-class Pinot Noir and establish a way of life for future generations. Lachini Vineyards respects the time-honored principles of uncompromising desire for quality and long-term stewardship of the lands from which they harvest. Their commitment begins as growers of world-class grapes with a desire to have these turn into exquisite wines that bear measurement against the test of time and other leading wines of the world.
The team at Lachini Vineyards brings years of experience in both the vineyard and winemaking and is committed to retaining the essence of our specific vineyard terroir along with each vintage’s character.
