Since the first vintage in 2006, C. Donatiello has produced wine almost exclusively from Pinot Noir and
Chardonnay. The objective is to make strong vibrant age worthy chardonnays and strong yet elegant
pinot noirs that show a great depth of flavors. Both the Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs need to tell the
story of where they were grown.
Partnering with the right grower is of the upmost importance at C. Donatiello. Our ideal vineyard is a
small family owned plot, usually less than 10 acres. Living on the property with his family ensures the
farmer’s intimate knowledge of the land. Working with small growers from throughout the Russian
River Valley, Chris gets to explore the terrior of the valley’s many neighborhoods. Its that exploration
that shows in C. Donatiello’s many single vineyard and cuvee wines.
