Meet our story
My grandparents were a part of the Bracero program. Seeking better opportunities in this great nation. Their hard work and sacrifices shaped who I am today. Provided a better future to our entire family. Three generations in the Napa Valley wine industry. Now here I am as a sole proprietor in Oregon. Thank you Carmen y Manuel !!
I first visited the Willamette Valley in 2000 through wine business trips. I kept visiting this great valley because it reminded me so much of Mendocino. Finally, in the summer of 2016, we moved to Oregon from Northern California so I could finally live out my dream of owning my own label! I Founded PARRA Wine Co in 2019 as the sole proprietor.
We focus on producing small-lot wines from uncommon varietals. A majority of the wines produced are allocated through my mailing list. Now with our second label of El Toro y El Matador, we are excited to allocate these 3 wines to Vinebase. Enjoy my craft as much as I enjoyed producing them, SALUD!!
Our winery is proud to be supported by Vinebase, a Public Benefit Corporation.See how a purchase from Parra Wine Co. is helping Vinebase build a bright future for independent producers.
