Mauritson Family Wines

California, the most populous state of the United States, located on the Pacific coast of North America is bordered by Oregon, Nevada, Arizona and Mexico. The four largest cities are Los Angeles, San Diego, San Jose and San Francisco. California is also the home of and wine producing regions such as Santa Barbara and Northern California's Wine Country.
Since the 1870's the Mauritson family has been growing grapes in the Dry Creek Valley, selling the fruit to a lot of top wineries in Sonoma County. Six generations and 130 years later, they decided to take advantage of their own bounty and start making wine under the Mauritson label. In 1998, the first vintage of Mauritson Dry Creek Zinfandel was formed and the Mauritson Family Winery began.
Although only into their seventh vintage, the Mauritson wines are by now earning a status for outstanding quality. To protect the unique characteristics of each vineyard, the harvested grapes are handled separately in small lots all through fermentation, allowing the winemaker to fetch the individual lots to their fullest potential prior to the final blending. The Grower's Reserve Zinfandel is a combination of the finest lots from each vintage. The Mauritson wine range includes Grower's Reserve Zinfandel, Dry Creek Zinfandel, Alexander Valley Chardonnay, Dry Creek Sauvignon Blanc, Rockpile Zinfandel, Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon and Rockpile Petite Sirah.
Their Chardonnay has turned out to become a blessing as well as a curse. The blessing is that in just their second year of production it has rapidly become one of their most famous wines while the curse is that their estate named Dobbins vineyard is the entity of a large amount of desire, so they only have access to a segment of the vineyard.

Mauritson Family Wines’ goal of winemaking program is to create wines of uncompromising quality with optimum flavor and aromatic components that reflect the unique characteristics of the vineyards from which they come.
