Centennial Club Benefits and Policies

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.

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.

CELLAR SELECTION

Growing and producing world-class Sangiovese is not for the faint of heart. Rattlesnakes, thistle and America’s most unique clone of Sangiovese are all that thrive atop Rattlesnake Hill on our Home Ranch. The 40% slope, shallow topsoil and virtually impenetrable volcanic shale are the perfect antidote for taming this vigorous varietal into producing intensely flavored grapes. The clone, planted in 1910 by Edoardo Seghesio in America’s oldest Sangiovese vineyard, produces small-berried, loosely formed clusters. This wine is 100% Sangiovese from Rattlesnake Hill on our Home Ranch estate in Alexander Valley.

In 1895 newlyweds Edoardo and Angela Seghesio purchased their first home in the western benchland of Alexander Valley. Sensing the land had great vineyard potential, Edoardo planted a field blend of Zinfandel, and thus began our family's legacy as vintners in Sonoma County. This site-specific Zinfandel comes from blocks 2 through 7, representing some of Home Ranch's most exceptional and oldest vines from Edoardo's original planting.
