Our Story

The story of Rocca

..

Paul Colantuoni

Winemaker

Paul has spent much of his life between the US and Europe, his roots being Italian and his winemaking style is the perfect mix of Old World Finesse and New World Exuberance. Paul has worked and studied in Tuscany and Chateauneuf-du-Pape under some of the greats. As Assistant winemaker to Ehern Jordan at Neyers, he brought his knowledge and artistry back to the Napa Valley. His non-interventionist approach to winemaking is what first caught the eye of Mary Rocca. His winemaking allows the unique characteristics of each vineyard, and each growing season, to shine.

“The Rocca Vineyards have all the pieces in place to make world-class wine, so my job is mainly to stand out of the fruit’s way”
