Life is about the experiences you have and the stories you tell... and the wine you drink.
Prothro Family Wines crafts elegant, structured wines to enjoy today and tomorrow. Our limited production is available exclusively through our Wine Club, mailing list, and special events. No distributors. No retail stores. No tasting rooms. Just notable, limited, and exclusive wines from carefully selected vineyards. Wines with a heritage. Wines with a story. Wines, like stories, that are meant to be shared.
Each bottle of Prothro Family Wines tells a story that began more than 25 years ago. In a small two-car garage in Los Gatos, California, Bruce and Ronda Prothro began a journey that would take them from wine drinkers to home winemakers to partners in an ultra-premium wine venture.
We source and select fruit from premium vineyards that give us the structure and characteristics we desire in a wine. We are blessed with access to some of the best vineyards in Napa Valley and each of these vineyards has a story.
Home winemakers embark on new California wine journey
In the 25-plus years since their first meeting, former longtime Los Gatos residents Bruce and Ronda Prothro have gone from wine consumers to producers then back to consumers.
“We start with grapes from premium vineyards and focus on care and attention throughout the whole winemaking process... but real craft comes with blending the wine to create a full, complete, and balanced experience!”
