ALEXANDER VALLEY

Rachel Ann Passalacqua met Eugene “Pete” Seghesio when he purchased her father’s grapes from the San Lorenzo vineyard in southernmost Alexander Valley. In 1956, the couple married, bringing more fruit into the Seghesio family. Today, San Lorenzo is a classic Zinfandel field blend, containing Petite Sirah and Carignane.
