Andretti’s Winery in Northern California is the Perfect Spring and Summer Destination
In 1996, Mario Andretti and his longtime friend Joe Antonini founded the Andretti Winery just outside of Napa Valley. Housed on 42 acres and located at the heart of the Oak Knoll District of Napa Valley, this picturesque and sublime destination would be a preeminent stop for the spring and summer seasons for any racing and wine enthusiast.

The grounds evoke a strong sense of the wine-rich region of Italy. The winery looks like a Tuscan village, complete with courtyard, fountain, arched windows, tiled corridors and a patio overlooking the 42-acre vineyard.
As a matter of fact, this design is a nod to Andretti’s boyhood home of Montona, Italy, (which is now Croatia), and honors Italian culture.
The Andretti Name is Synonymous of Quality
The Andretti Winery reflects the quality one would expect from a winner like Mario Andretti. It does not look showy or ostentatious, but rather follows its namesake of the man behind the exquisite range of wines, behind the steering wheel.
Andretti proclaimed in a interview we conducted with him back in 2013, that wine and racing are his passions, “my heart and my soul are in both.”
Consequently, it shows with such a glorious estate and ambience found at the Andretti Winery.
As luck would have it, readers can come back for more on the Andretti Winery. Also, be on the lookout for an interview with Mario Andretti!
