Full Time

  Pellegrini-Olivet Lane

Pellegrini-Olivet Lane is a renowned multigenerational family-owned winery & estate vineyard, located in the heart of the Russian River Valley in Sonoma County. The Pellegrini family purchased the 70-acre orchard in 1972, converting 60 acres to vineyard land by 1975. Our heirloom Pinot Noir and Chardonnay vines have been a coveted source of grapes by many luminary winemakers for decades, many of whom have contracted rows that we custom farm for. We produce and bottle our estate wines in our onsite 40,000 case winery, which we share with a tenant and custom crush clients. In addition to wine, we produce estate olive oil from our mature olive trees and are committed to expanding our olive orchard in the years to come.
