Seghesio Family Vineyards
Seghesio Family Vineyards was established in 1895. In that year, Edoardo Seghesio planted the family’s first vineyard in Alexander Valley. The winery makes a noteable Sangiovese with old vines from the Alexander Valley. This vineyard was planted in 1910 and is the oldest known example of the grape in California. Unlike much of the Sangiovese made in California, the balance of tannins and acidity in this wine is right on.
Their 2004 Costiera Pinot Noir is a blend of grapes from the Keyhole Ranch in the Russian River Valley and grapes sourced from the Sonoma Coast. 500 cases of this excellent wine were produced.
Seghesio also makes a fabulous, highly sought-after Rockpile Zinfandel with grapes sourced from the Lumetta Ranch Vineyard. This is a difficult wine to find and I have never seen it available. The winery also makes several other Italian varietals.
