"In 1906, our Great-Grandfather Paul Mariani (“Dida” - pronounced "did-uh") immigrated to California from Croatia and began farming, which was established by his son as the Mariani Fruit Packing Company (still owned and operated by the family today). In 1996, after learning of a budding wine scene in Virginia, my parents sold our California winery and headed east to build Rappahannock Cellars. In 2015, we set out to create the next generation of products from our wines through the art of distilling: 100% grape-based spirits. We’ve continued to celebrate one of Dida’s most dearly held passions: wine. We remain dedicated to our family's passion for agriculture and crafting outstanding grape products – something that we know would make Dida proud. "
