Pessagno Winery

About Pessagno Winery

Pessagno Winery brings to life a family’s 20-year dream of producing exclusive wines from prestigious vineyards throughout the Monterey and San Benito Counties. Winemaker Stephan Pessagno left a legacy of extravagance for all in the industry to enjoy. His deep-rooted passion and devotion elevated the Pessagno name to what it is today.

In October 2014, Pessagno Winery shifted over to the local Franscioni family. Ray Franscioni, a third-generation Monterey County farmer, shares Pessagno’s enthusiasm for elegant wines. His own RF Wines incorporate tradition and excellence to create exquisite products for those with a finer palate.

Pessagno is one of the few winery-based locations that offer accommodations.

The Pessagno Winery is known for creating wines of distinct character and elegance. It will forever prosper as one of California’s finest wine sources. Franscioni keeps the tradition of Pessagno alive and thriving.
