The Winery

Pescatore Winery is located on 15 acres in the rolling lower foothills just outside of Newcastle. The tasting room is done in a beautiful European style, with a full kitchen and a large outdoor patio. The beautiful local views make this a great spot to relax while tasting a few of the estate wines.

The Vineyards

The wines are all made from estate grown grapes. The varietals they have selected are Zinfandel, Barbera, Syrah, and Petite Sirah. The decomposed granite soils, accompanied by the pronounced diurnal shift, give this area a decided Southern European flare that accents these varietals perfectly.

The Wines

The wines are all estate bottled utilizing French, American, and occasionally Hungarian Oak. The winery prides itself on making wines in the tradition of the Rhone region of France.

The Winemaker

The winemaker at Pescatore is retired teacher David Wegner. He prides himself in making wine in small, hand-made batches using a more Italian traditional style.
