Our Old Vine Zinfandel blends vineyards planted on the Dry Creek bench and the cooler southwest Alexander Valley. Although “old vine” is often loosely interpreted in the wine industry, our benchmark is minimum 50 years. However, the average age of our vines is approximately 70 years old. True old vine Zinfandel is distinguished by head-trained vines with thick, gnarled trunks and is planted with ancient clones dating back to the turn of the century.

Old Vine Zinfandel’s viticultural legacy in the Russian River Valley dates back to the late 19th century, when Italian immigrants – mostly from the Tuscan province of Lucca – settled there and planted Zinfandel. In 1926 one of these immigrants, Benito Montafi, planted a Zinfandel-based “field blend” in the high plains of Russian River Valley’s Piner-Olivet district. This area has a long history of producing compelling old vine Zinfandels. The overall cooler temperature, courtesy of marine influenced air that flows up the Petaluma Gap from the south and up the Russian River from the west, creates significant diurnal swings, up to 55°F. This phenomenon prolongs hang time, which allows for a steady accumulation of ripe fruit flavors and aromatic intensity.

Each vintage, we harvest multiple diverse lots of Zinfandel that span the entire Sonoma County Zinfandel landscape. Each of these lots is produced under the careful eye of our winemaker, Andy Robinson. The best of these lots are selected to make Sonoma Zinfandel. A small amount of Petite Sirah is added to honor century old traditions and to provide color and structure. The result is a wine that offers tantalizing raspberry, blueberry, classic briary and spicy flavors with a balance of components for which Seghesio wines are known.

In our quest to produce benchmark Zinfandels, we have enthusiastically expanded our reach beyond Sonoma County to craft exceptional wines that offer counterpoint expressions of this beloved varietal. With renowned Zinfandel vineyard sites in premier growing regions across California, this pursuit led us to our first bottling from the high coastal mountains of Mendocino County.

The core of this blend comes from Chen's Vineyard, planted in 1972, in addition to other quality Dry Creek Valley vineyards. This wine is named after the gravelly loam soils prevalent up and down this AVA. The flavor profile tends toward red fruit with balanced acidity and soft tannins - a uniquely elegant expression of Zinfandel.

Recently, the Seghesio Family began an extensive vineyard replanting program that sought to grow intriguing varieties in the most suitable locations. Vermentino was planted in 2008, with 2011 marking the first vintage of this wine. While Vermentino’s exact origins are unclear, it thrives along the Mediterranean coasts of France and Italy, and is well suited to the Russian River Valley’s marine influenced climate.

In 1975, Ed Seghesio co-fermented an equal blend of Zinfandel, Petite Sirah and Carignane for his own consumption. When the Seghesio family released the first wines under their name in 1983, Ed’s blend was bottled and released in honor of his beloved wife, Fay Marian. It was at Fay’s urging that their son Ted became the family’s fourth-generation winemaker. To showcase the varietal characteristics of these remarkable old vines while honoring his mother, Ted began producing Marian’s Reserve again in 2004.
