Marchetti Wines are made in the tradition of the Old World, without the use of chemicals or preservatives. A process of natural fermentation is used, and the flavors are purely from the grapes themselves and the oak barrels in which the wine is made and aged.

Marchetti Wines are free-run, hand crafted and unfiltered. The flavors vary according to the varietal and year, but are always full bodied “Big Reds.”

This method of natural fermentation has been passed through five generations of the winemaker’s family, and the label reflects that history. The sketch of the gentleman with the moustache is taken from a photo of the winemaker’s maternal grandfather, Joseph, who traveled from his native Rome, Italy, in pursuit of Maria, the woman who would be his wife. The monument in the sketch is part of the seawall in the Bay of Messina, Sicily, the home of the winemaker’s father. The winemaker grew up in Washington State observing and learning the Old World method of wine making from these two men and from an uncle from Venice.

After more than 30 years, these specialty wines are now available to the public. Due to lack of preservatives, Marchetti Wines are best consumed at a single sitting. In the Italian tradition, these wines are best with food. Italians always have wine with food, and always have food with wine! Red wine should be served at room temperature. Any sediment found in the bottle is a signature of these unfiltered, classically made wines.

Thank you for your interest in our wines. Unfortunately, local zoning does not allow us to offer tours or tasting at the winery. We offer free delivery in Thurston County and ship wines via UPS.

Red, White & Drunk all over by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean writes about wine with a sensuous obsession... and often laugh-out-loud funny... Terrific.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.

Gary Vaynerchuck, Wine Library TV
