Dominic Scotto emigrated to America from the island of Ischia in the bay of Naples in 1903 and worked as a ship’s  caulker on the east coast, making wine in his spare time. The family wine making tradition was passed from generation  to generation and it’s now Anthony Scotto, Dominic’s grandson who runs the family company.

We have been working with the Lodi-based Scotto Family Wines now for several years and have been delighted by  how well these blends have been received – blends emphasizing bright fruit expression and minimal use of oak. Media  attention has also been growing, with the Old Vine Zinfandel appearing on Jancis Robinson’s purple pages website  and inspiring this comment from Simon Woods: “Why aren’t there more wines like this from California?..It’s hard to  think of a wine business that wouldn’t benefit from such a wine.”

Our family's wine history started in the mid 1800's with my grandfather, Salvatore Dominic Scotto, in Iscia, Italy. Like many in his day, he made wine for the family table and sold the excess; while presenting his wine to a new neighbor, he met his future bride. He taught his first son, Dominic, everything he knew about making wine.
In the years ahead Dominic followed in his father's footsteps, making wine for his family in his spare time while he worked as a ship's caulker. In 1903 his family immigrated to New York and eventually settled in Brooklyn, where he practiced his trade on the wooden
ships docked at ports up and down the east coast. He also resumed his second career as a winemaker and started selling five gallon crocks of red wine to the neighbors from his horse drawn wagon.
