Portuguese Organization:

Home Wine Lab




We are John and Mike Rodrigues, two brothers born and raised right here in Sonoma County. Through our grandfather, who migrated here from the Azores Islands of Portugal, we were introduced from an early age to the practice of making wine. As we grew up, winemaking seemed like the perfect fit for us! Between the two of us, we have 11 years of experience working in the wine industry for large winery laboratories, like Kenwood Vineyards and Korbel Champagne Cellars. On the side, we’ve been making our own wine as home winemakers, enjoying the whole process of transforming grapes into wine.

In 2015, we decided to venture off and start our own business. With our expertise in laboratory wine analysis and our passion in winemaking, we created the Home Wine Lab. Our purpose for this laboratory is to offer home winemakers and wineries without labs an opportunity to have routine analysis at reasonable prices.
