A Family Business: California's Oldest Wine Family

When Samuele Sebastiani moved to America in 1895 he bought a small vineyard just north of the City of Sonoma, California, and began selling bulk wine. As the years progressed, the vineyard was passed from generation to generation, where Samuele’s children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren have expanded his business and branding to see vast and explosive company growth.

Today, this small family-owned vineyard in Northern California has blossomed into a company eager to keep reputation and quality alive. Officially made its own company in 2010, The Other Guys is run by company president August Sebastiani – a fourth generation member of one of California’s oldest wine families. August and his sister Mia strive to reclaim the time-honored philosophy of a hard-working, family-run operation.

Flavors of dried strawberry, dark raspberry, plum sauce, cedar & pomegranate make for a sweet fruity, toasty oak & warm spice finish.

Pairings:

  • Spicy fried chicken with mashed potatoes and creamy gravy
  • Grilled polish sausage topped with roasted peppers on an onion roll served with macaroni salad dusted with smoked paprika
