Seghesio Family Vineyards is a historically significant winery in Sonoma County. Italian immigrant, Edoardo Seghesio, planted his first Zinfandel vines in Sonoma County’s Alexander Valley in 1895. He started out as a vigneron, supplying grapes to other winemakers, then eventually began making his own wine. The family’s land holdings expanded throughout the valley and today Seghesio has some of the oldest vineyards and clones in their possession.
The core of this blend comes from the Chen’s Vineyard planted in 1972 in Dry Creek Valley. This site is named after the gravelly loam soils prevalent up and down Dry Creek Valley. Due to the prevailing afternoon breezes in Dry Creek Valley, the flavour profile tends towards red fruit. This is a ripe, expressive dry style Zinfandel from a leading producer.
