2014 Dago Red

2014 Dago Red

We blended this wine in honor of my Grandfather Angelo “Sam” Cassara. Grandpa came to the US in 1911 and worked as a barber in Chicago. When WWI broke out  he was drafted into the  American Army where he earned his citizenship. In 1919 Grandpa returned to his native Sicily, sold the family farm and married Grandma. They returned to Chicago and raised their family.  Like most immigrants he made his own wine. His was a blend of red and white grapes similar to Chianti. My father helped. Grandpa would go to the basement every night before dinner and fill a pitcher with his creation, affectionately known as Dago Red. The family would drink the wine out of water glasses.                                     


Cost: $ 25.00 each, $ 270.00 per case of 12


Casa Cassara has been growing grapes since 1992 and making wine in the Santa Rita Hills and Santa Ynez Valley since 1998.
