32 Winds is a small family established winery, committed to making exceptional wines, located in Dry Creek Valley two miles from the Healdsburg Plaza. We produce approximately 2500 cases per year of award winning Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Cabernet, Sauvignon Blanc, and Zinfandel from hand selected vineyards in the AVA's of West Sonoma Coast, Russian River Valley, Napa Valley, and Dry Creek Valley. The winery and tasting room are nestled alongside the Dry Creek stream, a spawning preserve for Coho salmon and Steelhead trout.
32 Winds has been a vision of Ed Mascarin’s for all his life. It is a vision that has taken shape over 3 generations. The foundation was set with Ed’s grandfather, Angelo,who immigrated from northern Italy in 1904 and was hired to plant and farm vineyards in central California for the Italian Swiss Colony (now known as Asti Winery). Ed played in the vineyards as a boy, and later worked on the family farm pruning, harvesting, irrigating, drying the raisins, anything his Nonno asked. Meanwhile Ed’s father (also an Italian immigrant who married Angelo’s daughter) was a cellar Master at the Roma Wine Company, working for the Cella brothers and the venerable Louis Martini in the 1930’s and 40’s in the small central valley town of Kingsburg, CA. The grape, raisin, and wine business was all Ed knew growing up –it was a family affair as almost every member of Ed’s extended family was involved in some aspect of the business. The Local Lion’s Club offered then 17 year old “Eddie” a small scholarship to attend Cal Berkeley, where he was a walk-on for the football team and a star baseball player. The engineering classes he took along the way set him up to embark on a career in Industrial Engineering. 40 years and lots of Life Experiences later, he returned full circle to the wine world, and in 2009 became proprietor of 32 Winds.
Today, Ed, his daughter Mia, and a small team work together to continue the Mascarin legacy with 32 Winds. Matt Taylor vinifies the wine and manages the vineyards. Our grapes are sourced from select vineyards grown by trusted vineyard managers, as well as from our own estate vineyard. Our tasting room is nestled behind our vineyard in a garden setting, just outside Healdsburg, in gorgeous Sonoma County. There, you will find Sherry Harkins and Liz Findeiss who will host you on your visit and provide our delicious portfolio of wines for your tasting pleasure.
