Producer details / about the name:
Lodi, California is ideally situated between the Sierra Foothills and the San Francisco Bay Delta and benefits from cool afternoon and evening breezes, producing world-renowned Zinfandel. Our mature vineyards produce a powerfully rich and flavorful Old Vine Zinfandel.
Our sustainable way of grape growing ensures the health and vitality of the land. “Natural Predation” is an eco-friendly strategy to control harmful critters in the vineyards. Ladybugs, a natural insect predator, along with predator mites, feed on destructive aphids. Ladybugs would suggest pairing this Old Vine Zinfandel with fresh aphids or mites – but we recommend short ribs or a juicy burger.
