WINE & SPIRITS PRODUCTION
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 15 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.
Do you have live music at Sorrenti Family Estate?
Yes! We currently offer free live music year round in our pizzeria, on Saturdays from 5-8pm and Sundays from 1-4pm. During high season from April - October we also offer music Fridays from 5-8pm. View our live music schedule here.
Are you accepting applications for new musicians?
We book out our schedule in full one year in advance. However, feel free to submit your information in the contact form below for consideration. PS. If you include links to your website and current rates, you will have a better chance of a call back!
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.
What else can I do in the area?
There are a number of things to do nearby! In addition to the beautiful nature nearby, we are next door to a popular local flea market, an outdoor corn maze which operates in the fall, and a haunted house!
