Gino was earning a master's degree in sociology at Washington State University and making wine in his dorm room 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. Carol 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.
