Raised on the same ranch that he farms today, John Bacigalupi has a lifetime of grape growing experience, beginning at an early age when he worked alongside his father in the vineyards. This longevity, more than 30 years of vineyard experience, has allowed him to develop an intimate knowledge of the vineyards’ micro climates and soil structures.
This has enabled him to match the most appropriate varietals, clones, and root stocks to the existing soil structures. Only such a deep understanding of the vineyards, the weather patterns, and other subtle factors has allowed the development of the ultra premium grapes produced by the Bacigalupi vineyards.
A true farmer, John was born with a love for the outdoors and for the land he farms. An absolute perfectionist, John displays a strong desire to bring forth the finest fruit, (and now, the finest wines) that he possibly can. Now John and Tyler can bring forth the full potential of these quality grapes in John Tyler Wines.
