Coming in hot on Day 15 with another winter warmer… Zinfandel!
“At Seghesio Family Vineyards, the key word is family. Our family story starts in 1895, when an Italian immigrant and his new wife planted Zinfandel vines deep in Sonoma soil and set down roots that, five generations and 125 vintages later, are still growing strong.”
A NOTE ABOUT SEGHESIO & OLD VINE ZINFANDEL
“While “Old Vine” may be an unregulated term, we have devised our own strict guidelines for using the phrase. For us, “Old Vine” indicates a minimum age of 50 years, but we exceed even our own guidelines; our Old Vine Zinfandel, as an example, is produced from vineyards with an average age closer to 75 years.
Seghesio Family Vineyards farms a number of the original founding blocks of Zinfandel planted at our Home Ranch Vineyard in 1895. We also maintain the oldest blocks of Sangiovese in North America in our Chianti Station Vineyard. These Sangiovese vines represent an heirloom clone that has otherwise gone extinct and cannot be found anywhere else in the world.”
