2002 – Today Foppiano: The Next Chapter
In 2002, Foppiano hosts the first Petite Sirah symposium at the winery. Following the event, a group was formed whose sole function is to support the marketing and public relations effort for Petite Sirah – this group is better known as P.S. I Love You. Louis M. proudly becomes the first charter member.
The 2009 vintage launched the first of two new Foppiano Estate wines, Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay, and the bottles are released in 2010 with new branding. Vintage 2011 launched an Estate Zinfandel and vintage 2012 launched a very limited block collection only for the wine club. They include Gianna’s block Petite Sirah, Nonno’s block Zinfandel, River’s Edge Pinot Noir, Della’s block Chardonnay, and Grant Station Carignane. All of the Estate wines continue to receive critical praise.
