Seghesio Family Vineyards

2012 Marian's Reserve
2012 Marian's Reserve

In 1975, Ed Seghesio co-fermented an equal blend of Zinfandel, Petite Sirah and Carignane for his own consumption. When the Seghesio family released the first wines under their name in 1983, Ed’s blend was bottled and released in honor of his beloved wife, Fay Marian. It was at Fay’s urging that their sonTed became the family’s fourth-generation winemaker. To showcase the varietal characteristics of these remarkable old vines while honoring his mother, Ted began producing Marian’s Reserve again in 2004.

Estate old-vine vineyards on our Home Ranch in Alexander Valley. Long, warm days aided by the absence of marine influence marks this site. The soils are composed of clay and clay loam with underlying layers of basalt, sandstone and volcanic rock. Vines are challenged by the low nutrient level of the clay and the shallow topsoil, which both force them to produce more concentrated fruit.
