Seghesio Vineyards

California, the most populous state of the United States, located on the Pacific coast of North America is the home of and wine producing regions such as Santa Barbara and Northern California's Wine Country.

In 1895, four generations of the Seghesio Family have tended remarkable vineyards with the perspective gained from history, the humility of farming, and the enduring passion to improve with each vintage. They offer 11 types of wines with different flavors and taste. They are namely Sonoma Zinfandel, Home Ranch Zinfandel, Cortina Zinfandel, San Lorenzo Zinfandel, Old Vine Zinfandel, Arneis, Pinot Grigio, Barbera, Sangiovese, Venom and Omaggio.

Zinfandel is their Home Ranch in Alexander Valley in 1895. This wine comes primarily from four estate vineyards namely Home Ranch, San Lorenzo and River Road in Alexander Valley, and Cortina in Dry Creek Valley. It  is a tantalizing black raspberry and classic briary flavored wine with a balance of components. Home Ranch Zinfandel is located in the Alexander Valley with blackberry and blueberry fruit characteristics.  The vineyard thrives in Cortina have red raspberry, boysenberry, briary and brambly, and spicy white pepper qualities which are enhanced with higher acidity due to the cooler growing area.
San Lorenzo occupies the western and southern-most point in Alexander Valley in 1890. San Lorenzo is a classic Zinfandel field blend, containing significant amounts of Petite Sirah and Carignane. This rare wine is highly regarded as one of the finest Zinfandels produced. Old Vine Zinfandel wine comes from old head-pruned vineyards in Alexander and Dry Creek Valleys with spicy, lush black fruit that offers structure and Zinfandel’s classic briary and raspberry flavors. Arneis is a rare grape and their Keyhole Ranch in the Russian River Valley is the perfect home for this varietal.

Sonoma County, principally their Dry Creek and Russian River Valley vineyards, are ideal for Pinot Grigio varietal. In 1978, Barbera vines were discovered on the northern tip of the Chianti Station vineyard. Barbera's naturally high acidity is well suited to the warmer Alexander Valley. Sangiovese in California was obtained when this grape was planted on unforgiving soils.

Planted in 1910 by Edoardo Seghesio in America’s oldest Sangiovese vineyard, produces small-berried, loosely formed clusters. Venom, their model Sangiovese, culminates a century spent enriching flavor. Omaggio wine’s ability is attributed to the long, silky tannins derived from optimally ripened fruit. The goal of Seghesio Vineyard’s winemaking program is to create wines of compromising quality with optimum flavor and aromatic components.
