ABOUT THE WINERY QUESTIONS
How long has the Sorrenti Family owned and operated Sorrenti Family Estate?
Nearly 40 years! Mary and Dominic began the business in 1981.
What is the difference between Sorrenti Family Estate and Cherry Valley Vineyards?
There is no difference. About 10 years ago the family decided to incorporate their name into the title of the business, in the hopes of creating a brand that would house more than just a winery in the future (pizzeria, future distillery, etc.). The ownership has never changed hands.
Why are wines unavailable sometimes? Why don’t we always carry the same varieties?
We don’t always have the same wines available, because, due to the weather of each season, some grapes may be more available than others. Also, because of the limited size of our winery, we only have enough storage for about half of our varieties, so it is not always possible to carry each type of wine ALL of the time. Supply and demand also plays into factor - we like to carry wines that our customers love, and to experiment with new wines that people may enjoy.
THINGS TO DO QUESTIONS
What is the Cherry Valley National Wildlife Refuge & where is it?
In 2010, Mary and Dominic Sorrenti sold 187 acres of land to the Cherry Valley National Wildlife Refuge. his was the first parcel in the reserve, and the land has been proclaimed to host hundreds of unique species of wildlife, and is home to the endangered Bog Turtle. The entrance to the park is located alongside the winery, behind the fence. The trailhead is about 150 meters from the winery’s parking lot. Our guests are invited to partake in exploring the reserve and learning about the significance, diversity, and importance of the Wildlife Refuge.
Why do we no longer do weddings?
We stopped doing weddings after the 2015 season because our business and pizzeria have both grown tremendously and parking is limited. We want to focus on our customers who come to enjoy great wine and food, and make sure they fully enjoy their experience. We still do smaller parties and other events in the pavilion, such as fundraisers and concerts.
Who do we contact about hosting an event?
Please visit our event page to download our party package and find out more info. You may email with questions. Email is the best way to reach, especially during our high season when we are experience a high call volume.
