The Seghesios have company in making magic with Pagani grapes — company like Bedrock, Carlisle, Robert Biale, and of course, Ridge.
Pagani Ranch Vineyard is a 125-year-old legend. When Felice Pagani bought part of the Wildwood Dairy Farm in the 1880s, could he have guessed that 125 years after he planted his first vines, Pagani Ranch would still be among the most revered Zinfandel vineyards in the United States? Tended by the fourth generation of Paganis, this bucolic 30-acre vineyard nestled in the rolling hills along Sonoma’s Highway 12 yields some of the country’s most beloved ancient clusters of small-berry Zinfandel.
The Seghesio story is straight out of 19th-century folklore. Edoardo Seghesio left Piedmont, Italy, in 1886 and settled in the Italian Swiss Colony nestled in Sonoma County. In 1893, Edoardo wed Angela Vasconi, the niece of the Colony’s manager. Two years later, the couple purchased 56 untouched acres in northern Alexander Valley, planting their first Zinfandel vines along with a few Italian varietals. Five generations of Seghesios would continue the proud family tradition.
Wasn’t my favorite. Have had other years of this wine and liked them a lot better.
