“For the Zinfandel enthusiasts”
In 2000,Steve Zichichi, a New Orleans physician, and his wife, Kristin, purchased the 22 acre Bartolozzi Ranch in Dry Creek Valley, located in the historic town of Healdsburg. The ranch consists of 14 acres of zinfandel and 4 acres of petite sirah, all planted in 1928 and 1964.The vines are planted on St. George root stock, are head pruned, and grow in rocky, gravelly soil. After several years of selling their grapes to local wineries, the Zichichi's decided to build their own winery, which was completed in 2006. The facility includes a large rustic tasting room with a fabulous redwood bar and a large deck for picnics that looks out over the vineyard and the mountains to the east. Our Old Vine Zinfandel 2010 is from the grapes from 80 year + old vines that were hand picked when fully ripe. The wine is deep colored with a hint of jammy flavored plums, blackberry and currants and is a classic example of old vine Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel that zin enthusiasts will not want to miss. We are sold out of 2010, so look for the release of 2011
