Seghesio Family Vineyards

2012 Block 8 Zinfandel
2012 Block 8 Zinfandel

When Rachel Ann Passalacqua Seghesio’s grandfather first purchased the San Lorenzo Vineyard in 1896 with gold coins he earned working as a chef in California’s gold mines, it was already planted to Zinfandel. Block 8 was planted over a decade ago on the hills of San Lorenzo with scion wood from the historic mother clones.

SAN LORENZO

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.
