Seghesio Family Vineyards

2011 Cortina Zinfandel
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.

Cortina

The stronger marine influence of Dry Creek Valley keeps it cooler than Alexander Valley. In a normal season, Cortina will ripen later due to the prevailing afternoon breezes that typically temper the summer's heat. With mornings shrouded in fog during the summer months, this ranch’s diverse soils consist primarily of a gravelly loam called Cortina.
