Our Story

Old World Roots

Penns Woods Winery was founded in 2001 by Italian immigrant & USMC veteran Gino Razzi. After spending decades as a wine importer, he began making wine in Abruzzo in the mid 1990s. After a series of successful & highly rated commercial releases under his belt, he turned his attention to the promising soils in his adopted home of Pennsylvania. Gino found the perfect site in Chadds Ford with a charming 1800s farmhouse & a decades old established vineyard in need of rehabilitation. After three years of hard work, he was finally able to begin making wines from his own estate grown grapes. 

Family Winery

Gino opened a small tasting room in 2006 & brought in his daughter Carley in 2010 to help manage the growing business. Soon after, Carley brought on Penns Woods first full time employee Andrea Creato. Together, they worked to create unforgettable experiences, build a community &  expand operations. In 2012, Gino brought on fellow Italian & viticulture management expert Davide Creato & began mentoring him as a winemaker.  In 2013 Gino & Davide planted a second vineyard site in Chester County called Sandy Hill & in 2019 they team expanded onto our third site close to that one, named Woodward Farm. 

From Grape to Glass

Blending tradition & innovation, Penns Woods Winery is the experience leader of viticulture in Pennsylvania. For over 20 years, we have produced premium, Euro-styled wines that highlight the depth & flavors unique to our region by utilizing time-honored sustainable farming techniques alongside a cutting edge facility. Our wines are a true expression of this beautiful land we call home & we can’t wait to share them with you!
