Seghesio Family Vineyards

cellar selections

After each release of a new vintage, we set aside a few cases – for our own research into the effects of winemaking variables over time, and to be able to delight customers who seek more bottle age for peak drinkability. These treasured wines aged in ideal cellar conditions are called “Cellar Selections,” and below are a few we have made available for online ordering. If you would like assistance placing your order, or are interested in discovering more limited offerings from our cellar, please contact us at or 707.260.0936.

2013 Barbera Image
94pts - the tasting panel + seal of excellence
91pts - Wine Enthusiast

Edoardo Seghesio immigrated to America from the Piedmont region of Italy, home to Barbera. In 1895, he planted his first vineyards to grapes he had come to enjoy in his new country, yet one vineyard was saved for varietals from his homeland. Our historic, proprietary Barbera clones benefit from the warm, dry days in northern Alexander Valley, where the grape’s classic acidity creates a wine with vibrant aromas and a velvety texture. This wine is 100% Barbera from our Estate Home Ranch in Alexander Valley.

2013 Sangiovese Image

Edoardo Seghesio first worked with Sangiovese in the late 1800s during his tenure as winemaker at Italian Swiss Colony. In 1910, he planted a Chianti field blend surrounding the railroad station in what was then Chianti, California. Those Sangiovese plantings on our Home Ranch are the oldest in America and provided the rich source of four unique clones for our subsequent plantings of the varietal. Although Sangiovese typically grows vigorously, the low-yielding, shallow soils of our Home Ranch, combined with our small-berried clones, produce wines of intense varietal character.

2012 Il Cinghiale Petite Sirah Image

We named this wine Il Cinghiale — wild boar in Italian — for a reason: brawny and rich, it evokes untamed forest, an open fire and roasting meat. Petite Sirah was first introduced in California in 1878, mistakenly as Syrah. Growers recognized the error and soon began calling the newcomer Petite Sirah for its small berries and low yields.

2011 Old Vine Carignane Image

Carignane is one of the world’s most widely planted varietals, prominent in Southern France, the United States, Israel, Northern Africa and many former Soviet countries. It is one of the wine industry’s favorite blending wines and a staple in our old vine plantings of Zinfandel. Like most grape varieties, Carignane vines evolve into something very special at about 50 years of age. This wine displays the character and complexity inherent in mature vineyards.
