Bacio Divino Cellars is known for its lineup of wines including Bacio Divino, Pazzo, Vagabond and Janzen. When grapes were available from the Bacigalupi Vineyard in 2009, a Russian River Valley Pinot Noir was produced for the first time. Also, after twenty years of producing red wine, a Russian River Valley Chardonnay from Dutton Ranch Vineyard was added with the 2012 vintage under the Lucie label.
Claus and Diana Janzen work out of the Napa Valley. After spending 12 years at Caymus, developing an international marketing operation, Claus developed winemaking ambitions of his own. A chance acquisition of Sangiovese grapes in 1993 led to the first vintage of Bacio Davino. The couple's son, Kyle Janzen, is following in his father's footsteps and assists in all phases of work at the winery. The consulting winemaker and viticulturist is Kirk Venge. Vineyard manager is David Barolucci.
