Fratelli Peratais an appropriate name for this small winery and vineyard run by the brothers Gino and Joe Perata and their families. In Italian, Fratelli Perata means Perata Brothers. Maternal GrandparentsBrothers, Gino and Joe Perata, rekindled the winemaking history of their father, grandfather and great-uncle when they established their winery using grapes grown on their 31 acre vineyard. Sons of Italian  immigrants, Gino and Joe learned  winemaking at the knees of their father and great-uncle who produced hundreds of gallons of wine for family and friends while living in Camarillo located in Ventura County, California. Gino and Joe were taught from the very beginning about the need for hands-on work to produce top quality  wines. 

Buon Amici

Gino was earning a master's degree in sociology at Washington State University and  making wine in his dorm Joe and Gino Perataroom when he met his wife, Carol. Carol grew up in the Seattle suburbs. Following graduation and marriage, the Peratas were lured away from the halls of academia by a desire to return to Gino's agricultural roots. 

Gino and Carol became familiar with the Paso Robles area during travels up and down the coast between Washington and Ventura County. In 1977, with brother Joe, they purchased  the Arbor Road site of their vineyard and winery. After much consideration, the  Peratas chose this  hilltop site over  others because of  the sunny climate cooled by Pacific breezes. 

The Peratas' initial plantings included  Zinfandel for Gino and Joe's father who loved his  'Zingarella.' Their 31 acre vineyard,  established in 1980,  is completely  hand-worked and  hand-harvested. Gino Perata at HarvestCarol says, 'our  grapes are cultivated  for small berry size. This produces less tonnage, but a higher skin to pulp ratio for rich extracts which give our wines a fuller flavor.' 

From  the beginning the Peratas followed the philosophy of Gino and Joe's father,  who believed in stressing the plants to produce lower crop yields for the  most intense fruit. "Buoni Amici" means "good friends" and Gino, Joe and Carol are the best of friends and extend that friendship to all those who visit the winery. 

Family, Wines and Life
Now, Fratelli Perata, the Perata brothers, along with Gino's wife Carol, produce high quality estate wines highly prized for their intensity. We hope you will enjoy them as much as we do.Their life is one of friends, family and wine. This website will try to bring you the flavor of our wines, life and history. Come along with us on our journey.
