A fourth-generation Sonoma County farmer, Mark Sanchietti is the son of renowned winegrower Mel Sanchietti. Mark learned his craft from Mel, and grew up working in his family’s orchards and vineyard, before earning a degree in agricultural business from Cal Poly. In 2007, Mark and his wife, Jenny, founded Sanchietti Farming.
Mark Sanchietti is the youngest in a long line of Sonoma grape farmers. He is now responsible for his family’s many excellent Pinot and Chardonnay sites located in western Sonoma. We draw from two sites Mark has planted expressly for Patz & Hall to produce a Sanchietti Vineyard Pinot Noir sold exclusively to our Wine Club.
Mark quickly established a reputation as a rising star in the next generation of Sonoma County winegrowers, respected for his viticultural know-how and his absolute dedication to growing the best grapes. Mark has become one of our most important grower partners, planting Two Dryer's Vineyard exclusively for Patz & Hall, as well as a 9-acre block of Pleasant Hill Vineyard.
