Renowned winemaker Antoine Favero’s journey is a tapestry of diverse experiences. Born in France’s Champagne region, his family’s adventures led them to a coastal Peruvian village before settling in Northern California’s wine country. Antoine’s epiphany came at the University of California at Davis, where he uncovered enology’s secrets and ignited his passion for crafting exceptional wines.
With a background that includes stints at premier wineries specializing in Bordeaux, Rhone varietals, and Zinfandel, Antoine brings a wealth of expertise to the art of winemaking. At Mazzocco, he’s transformed the winery into a must-visit destination for unique and flavorful Zinfandels.

His creations vividly capture the varietal and terroir nuances of each vineyard site, reflecting his deep connection with the wines and the profound tribute they pay to the vineyards and grapes they originate from. In every bottle, Antoine weaves a unique masterpiece.
