About This Wine

The Bargetto family has been making great wine in California’s Santa Cruz Mountains since 1890.

Sadly, some varieties don’t fare well there. Case in point: Zinfandel. The Bargettos love Zin, so in order to make it, they had to seek out fruit from another appellation. And there’s no better place to find truly expressive Zinfandel grapes than California’s Lodi area.

There, some of the oldest Zin vines on the planet can be found — nearly as old as the Bargetto winery. Rauser Ranch is situated along the Mokelumne River, and was planted in 1909. Right next door, planted a few years later, is the Schmierer Vineyard. These vineyards have no fancy trellis system; all of the vines are head-pruned, and their gnarled appearance speaks to their age.

The Bargettos purchased fruit from these vineyards and transformed it into a truly special wine — a wine that honors the family heritage as well as Zinfandel’s special place in California wine history.

About Zinfandel

California's own grape variety. Red Zinfandel (not to be confused with "white" Zinfandel) can produce full-bodied wines packed with ripe berry fruit and smooth tannins. Flavors of blackberries and spicy pepper.
