So sorry to hear about John's death. What a great man he was, and he will always continue to inspire all of us in the wine industry. It was an honor to have known him all these years.

Dear Margaret,
We just read about John's death. John was a good and helpful friend for the 18 years we lived in Redwood Valley. He was a powerhouse in the wine industry. We hope that you are in good health and have many years ahead of you.

I too was very fortunate in meeting Mr. Parducci early in my wine career, and later on by chance when I had moved to Seattle, WA. A true Pioneer in our Industry showing passion and devotion to his family, friends, and his wines. RIP...thank you for the legacy you left.

Let me start out by saying, ive provided caregiving services for many, but this is one that im most proud and honored and privileged to have been a part of. To have been so up and close and personal and hands on with such a great man a legend to say the least. I have many moments and memories that i get to call my own. He was a great man and will miss him greatly, but to know hes lived and accomplished so much in his life makes his passing a little easier for all of us! Thank you John and to his family for allowing me the great privilege and opportunity to be a part of him and Margaret's life for the last 2,1/2 yrs, thank you

John Parducci, certainly a legend and one of a kind for sure. I remember when he convinced my dad Ed Kimmel to tear out the permanent pasture and plant grapes in Potter Valley back in the 70's. We sold our fruit to John for the first few years and I can still remember those buying conversations. John would say the fruit was not very good and of course the price he paid would have to be lower. And so the discussion would continue for quite a while before an agreed upon price. I just have to smile thinking back, standing at those gondola conversations with my dad and John going back and forth over price and quality. Not much has changed between the seller and buyer conversations of today. Yes, John was a pioneer and certainly the face and name of Mendocino County. I don't believe that that will change any time soon. Our condolences to John's family, and I pray that the many fond memories of his gregarious life and humor will provide much comfort.

I always enjoyed interviewing John when my husband Tom and I were with the Ukiah Daily Journal. We admired and respected him, his family and his business. A sadness in my heart as I remember him and his love of life.

Roger & I met John when our daughter, Melinda, married Rich 20 years ago. We have always felt honored to have known both John and Margarett.

Leah Middleton, niece. Do I have stories!. Uncle John was so much fun; he was a great teaser. He could also be a pistol. I am blessed to have been able to have been with him weekly these last few years of his decline. He gave his gregarious personally, not just to me, but to so many, clear to the end. On his 96th birthday I said, "Wow Uncle John, 96 years." He said, "96 years, it sure went by fast." I will miss him.

I worked with John in the early 1980's through the national sales company that marketed Parducci Wines. He sure could be erasable, but there was a glint in his eye and a sly smile. I still have a bottle of his wine that he signed and gave me for my birthday... I will open it in his honor, for a guy who was really a pioneer.My sincere condolences to the entire family.
