Signorello Estate Opens New Tasting Room After Fire
Ray Signorello Jr, owner and co-winemaker at Signorello Estate, has announced that a temporary tasting room will open for wine tourists on the Silverado Trail from 13 July this year.
Signorello’s winery building was destroyed by a ‘tornado of fire’ amid savage wildfires that swept northern California in October 2017, killing more than 40 people and leaving many more homeless.
In January 2018, Signorello launched plans to rebuild, hiring Taylor Lombardo Architects and Nordby Construction Company. ‘We can move Signorello Estate beyond our recent setbacks and towards a brighter future,’ Signorello Jr said. As of 13 July 2018 the newly-built temporary tasting space, The Estate Room, will be open to the public.
Wine tourists can book the ‘Estate Experience’, priced at $100 per person, which includes a small group tasting, vineyard tour, plus an insight into Signorello’s ambitious rebuilding plans, according to the statement.
Signorello hopes that the new venture sends a clear message to the public that the winery is open for business, despite suffering devastating fire damage eight months ago. The modular building will serve as Signorello’s home for as long as the winery takes to be fully rebuilt, which could be up to three years, according to a press release from the estate.
Signorello Jr lost his personal wine library in the fire, but the estate’s 2017 vintage survived intact in the property’s tank farm, and the in-barrel 2016 vintage also escaped the flames.

We have exciting news! We have a new addition!
The Sparkling Champagne Club
The Sparkling Champagne Club is a newly launched bi-monthly club offering anywhere between 1-3 bottles every other month (6 shipments a year). The number of bottles will vary depending on what we are able to procure and how rare they are! It will be $100* every other month (on average). On occasion there may even be a rare vintage find or a Tête de Cuvee!
Our goal for our members is to experience everything from unique, small, family owned grower-producers to historically regaled larger producers from Champagne and beyond.
Through this bi-monthly journey into the world of Champagne and sparkling wine, club members will not only experience sparkling from the world renowned classic regions, but also lesser known hidden jewels. And of course, to realize that bubbly pairs with everything!
