Husband and wife team Tim Borges and Jane Portalupi are proudly celebrating the 20th anniversary of Portalupi Winery and the Cal-Ital-inspired wines they produce. They both identify deeply with their Italian heritage, and with Tim’s 40 plus years of experience in the wine industry, Portalupi honors the Italian immigrants who brought their values and viticulture to Northern California.

Portalupi’s 2019 vintage Petite Sirah comes from the organically certified L. Venturi Vineyard, planted on Pinole soils that were chosen for their excellent drainage and deficiency in organic matter, causing roots to dig deeply into the earth in search of nutrients. Tim ages his Petite Sirah in American oak, which he believes helps balance the variety and results in a super smooth mouthfeel that he recommends enjoying immediately or over the next couple of years.

2019 PORTALUPI L VENTURI VINEYARD PETITE SIRAH

93WE | Tasting Notes from Wine Enthusiast, “So rich and full bodied, this huge, concentrated, inky-colored wine makes a big impression from first glance to lingering finish. It’s all rich fruit and tempting chocolate flavors, from blueberry to blackberry to cocoa. The firm tannins are largely absorbed by the generous fruitiness so it’s drinkable now, but best from 2025.” WINE ENTHUSIAST 93 POINTS

Notes from Edward, “This is one those MASSIVE Cali Reds that inspires me to Grill every time we open a bottle to gather… I personally love grilling with a glass of wine, music, and friends. The Ultimate Food and Wine pairing for this single vineyard 2019 Portalupi L Venturi Petit Sirah is Ribs for sure – low and slow if you prefer smoked, or grilled/charred with a Honey BBQ Sauce or Spicy Rub … it’s so perfectly balanced, that you can enjoy with spicy and sweet. Such a beautiful wine to enjoy a glass any time you want something different from Cabernet, because anyone can easily drink this Inky Red Wine Every Day! Treat yourself 🙂 Cheers to Full Glasses! “ CALIHIWINES 95 POINTS
