Gamba Vineyards and Winery is a small, family-owned winery in Sonoma County, California. The winery was founded in 1999 by Agostino Gamba, Jr. and his wife Paulette, guided by the family heritage of over six generations of grape growing. The estate vineyards have been in the Gamba family for over fifty years, although the vineyard itself is over 100 years old. Agostino (who goes by Gus) began his lifelong love affair with wine at an early age, during a carefully guided apprenticeship with his father. After studying business and economics down at UC Santa Barbara, Gus returned to northern California to enroll in the viticulture and enology extension program at UC Davis. His interest in business dovetailed with his passion for grape-growing and enology, setting the stage for his winemaking career. Gus’s early mentors in Sonoma included Richard Arrowood and Sam Sebastiani, both well-respected winemakers with a penchant for crafting Zinfandel. Gus worked his way through the ranks during the early 1990s, eventually becoming the director of operations at Sonoma’s Viansa winery. Gus left Viansa in 2000 to pursue his dream of reviving the Gamba family estate vineyards and starting his own wine label.
