Seghesio Family Vineyards


Seghesio Family Vineyards is nearly synonymous with Zinfandel, and has been so ever since founder Edoardo Seghesio planted his first Zinfandel vines in Sonoma County’s Alexander Valley in 1895.

“Pazienza, that was grandma’s favorite word -- Patience.” –Edward Seghesio

Our Winemaking Philosophy

2015 Montafi Zinfandel

Old Vine Zinfandel’s viticultural legacy in the Russian River Valley dates back to the late 19th century, when Italian immigrants – mostly from the Tuscan province of Lucca – settled there and planted Zinfandel. In 1916 one of these immigrants, Benito Montafi, planted a Zinfandel-based “field blend” in the high plains of Russian River Valley’s Piner-Olivet district. This area has a long history of producing compelling old vine Zinfandels. For us, having produced Zinfandel for may years from the adjacent Vera Gold Vineyard we were ecstatic when the opportunity arose to purchase Montafi in 2014.

2015 Sonoma Zinfandel
90pts -  Wine Spectator

Each vintage, we harvest multiple diverse lots of Zinfandel that span the entire Sonoma County Zinfandel landscape. Each of these lots is produced under the careful eye of our winemaker, Ted Seghesio. The best of these lots are selected to make Sonoma Zinfandel. A small amount of Petite Sirah is added to honor century old traditions and to provide color and structure. The result is a wine that offers tantalizing raspberry, blueberry, classic briary and spicy flavors with a balance of components for which Seghesio wines are known.

2014 Rockpile Zinfandel
93pts -  Wine Spectator
92pts -  Wine Advocate

The Rockpile Appellation , contiguous to Dry Creek Valley, is defined by ridgetops with elevations ranging from 800 to 2,100 feet above sea level. The appellation’s size is limited by its rugged terrain. Specializing in hearty red varietals, Rockpile is a perfect site to showcase Sonoma County as the world’s premier location for Zinfandel. Steep, well-drained hillsides with shallow, rocky topsoil provide for less vigorous vines, smaller berries and intensely flavored Zinfandel. The soils are generally comprised of loam to clay loam with a red brown color due to the higher oxidation. It is only 12 to 24 inches deep in the best of the viticultural locations.

2014 Old Vine Zinfandel
91pts - Wine Spectator

Our Old Vine Zinfandel blends vineyards planted on the Dry Creek bench and the cooler southwest Alexander Valley. Although “old vine” is often loosely interpreted in the wine industry, our benchmark is minimum 50 years. However, the average age of our vines is approximately 70 years old. True old vine Zinfandel is distinguished by head-trained vines with thick, gnarled trunks and is planted with ancient clones dating back to the turn of the century.

2011 Cortina Zinfandel

In the early 1900s, Seghesio Family Vineyards began purchasing fruit from growers in Dry Creek Valley in recognition of the area’s great potential for Zinfandel. Our Dry Creek Valley appellation Zinfandel is sourced from some of the valley’s best benchland sites as well as from the estate-farmed Cortina vineyard, named for the dominant soil type of this area. Cortina is a gravelly loam that contributes to Dry Creek Valley’s reputation as one of the finest places in the world to grow Zinfandel.

First planted by their fathers in 1956 on benchland soils northeast of Geyserville in Alexander Valley, Todd Brothers Ranch produces highly sought after fruit through stringent viticulture practices and a precision symbiotic match between rootstock and soil.

2011 San Lorenzo Zinfandel

San Lorenzo occupies the western and southern-most point in Alexander Valley. The vineyard is planted on the bench above the fog layer. It is rooted in Raynor and Haire clay loams. Typical for vineyards planted in 1890’s, it is Zinfandel based interplanted with Petite Sirah and Carignane.  Blackberry, black currant and unique spicy/brambly essences help make this Zinfandel field blend one of a kind. This rare wine is highly regarded as one of the finest Zinfandels produced.

2014 Maffei Zinfandel

In the case of the Maffei Vineyard, Jim and Ned Neumiller, Seghesio’s father and son growers, have been working with the Maffei family for a few years to secure fruit for a single vineyard wine from head-trained heritage selection blocks planted in 1928 and 1942. They work hand-in-hand with the original owners’ granddaughter Joanne Maffei. Just like the Seghesio’s, she is a passionate steward of her family’s land—so much so that Ned considers Maffei to be among the most meticulously farmed vineyards he’s ever seen. “I swear Joanne has a name for every vine,” concurs Jim.
