About Seghesio Family Vineyards
The Seghesio family are true veterans in the world of California wine. After all, they first planted vineyards in Sonoma County in 1895.

This is one of the finest Zins on the market, great taste, no need to store, drink now.

Zinfandel is not the rage it was in the 1980s and early 1990s, as there are now too many wines made from overripe fruit or from young vines, or overwhelmed by excessive use of new barrels. Today's Zin styles range from elegant, taut, and claret-like midweights to superripe and potty behemoths, with off-the-charts...
