The core of this blend comes from Chen's Vineyard, planted in 1972, in addition to other quality Dry Creek Valley vineyards. This wine is named after the gravelly loam soils prevalent up and down this AVA. The flavor profile tends toward red fruit with balanced acidity and soft tannins - a uniquely elegant expression of Zinfandel.

Fourth and fifth generation Seghesio family members, Jim and Ned Neumiller, father and son growers, have been working with the Maffei family for a few years to secure fruit for a single vineyard wine from head-trained heritage selection blocks planted in  1928 and 1942. They work hand-in-hand with the original owners’ granddaughter Joanne Maffei. Just like the Seghesio family, she is a passionate steward of the land—so much so that Ned considers Maffei to be among the most meticulously farmed vineyards he’s ever seen. “I swear Joanne has a name for every vine,” concurs Jim.

In our quest to produce benchmark Zinfandels, we have enthusiastically expanded our reach beyond Sonoma County to craft exceptional wines that offer counterpoint expressions of this beloved varietal. With renowned Zinfandel vineyard sites in premier growing regions across California, this pursuit led us to our first bottling from the high coastal mountains of Mendocino County.

Old Vine Zinfandel’s viticultural legacy in the Russian River Valley dates back to the late 19th century, when Italian immigrants settled there and planted Zinfandel. In 1926 one of these immigrants, Benito Montafi, planted a Zinfandel-based “field blend” in the high plains of the Piner-Olivet district, which has a long history of producing compelling old vine Zinfandels. For us, having produced Zinfandel for many years from the adjacent Vera Gold Vineyard, we were ecstatic when the opportunity arose to purchase Montafi in 2014.

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.

Like the Seghesio Family, the Pagani’s have a history deeply rooted in Zinfandel. This wine comes form the storied Pagani Ranch in Sonoma Valley. The vineyard is completely dry farmed bringing a very deep root system that provides for a rich and nuanced structure to the fruit.

As we strive to always produce the very best Zinfandel we can, we began to explore other regions and vineyards outside of Sonoma County that would allow us to capture different expressions of Zinfandel and showcase the diversity and range of styles for this variety. Our exploits led us to some very unique vineyards in Paso Robles that, like Sonoma County, has a rich history of wine growing that has largely been shaped by the success of Zinfandel, planted there as early as the 1880’s. Paso Robles features a generally warmer and drier climate than Sonoma County with different soil compositions and some stunning old vines sites. We hope you enjoy our take on Zinfandel from this storied region.

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.

Each vintage, we harvest multiple diverse lots of Zinfandel that span the entire Sonoma County Zinfandel landscape. Each of these lots is produced under the careful eye of our winemaker, Andy Robinson. The best of these lots are selected to make Sonoma Zinfandel. A small amount of Petite Sirah is added to honor century old traditions and to provide color and structure. The result is a wine that offers tantalizing raspberry, blueberry, classic briary and spicy flavors with a balance of components for which Seghesio wines are known.

In 2014, we jumped at the first opportunity to buy fruit from second-generation grape grower Ken Todd. First planted by their fathers in 1956 on benchland soils northeast of Geyserville in Alexander Valley, Todd Brothers Ranch produces highly sought after fruit through stringent viticulture practices and a precision symbiotic match between rootstock and soil.
