Great Wines from Great Vineyards


ESTATE FRUIT: Our estate vineyard located in the beautiful Alexander Valley, was planted in 2001. It is primarily Dupratt – Clone 3309. The front block are all head trained vines, consisting of Zinfandel, and Petite Sirah. In 2012, we added a small amount of head trained Carignane along with some Alicante Bouchet. This front vineyard is about 1 acre total. In 2006, we planted an acre of vines in the back of the property. These vines were installed on a traditional wire trellis system. This back block consists of Zinfandel, Petite Sirah, and Carignane. This vineyard is approximately 1 1/4 acres. All of our estate fruit is drip watered. Every vine is meticulously pruned, fertilized, and cared for. All of our rows are tractored with a state of the art spader, ensuring nutrient circulation, and soil aeration.

ALEGR’IA VINEYARD:  South of Healdsburg along the Russian River sits the home of what will be our Old Vine Zinfandel release. This Block is an old field blend belonging to Acorn Winery, owned by Bill & Betsy Nachbauer. This is a blend of 78% Zinfandel, 12% Alicante Bouchet, 8% Petite Sirah. The remaining 2% is from an incredible 10 varietals including Carignane, Trousseau, Sangiovese, Cinsaut, Muscat, and Grenache. We were very fortunate to get this fruit, and this will not be released until Summer of 2015.

Planted in the mid 1880’s, this 70 acre plot is mainly Zinfandel, Petite Sirah, and Carignane.
