Planted in 1869, the Original Grandpere Vineyard is one of the truly iconic California vineyards and the oldest documented Zinfandel vineyard in America. The California State Fair named it Vineyard of the Year in 2016. Farmed by only four families over its 140+ year history, the vineyard produces a very small amount of fruit each year and every ton is prized by winemakers.

In 2012 we destemmed (but did not crush) the berries into open top bins and immediately added oak to help stabilize the color and extract rich, round tannins. Inoculated with 2 yeasts simultaneously to encourage complexity, we fermented it hot and quick, and pressed it off after only 10 days. We find a delicious harmony of ripe red fruit, pepper, and spice in this vintage; an incredible companion to steak, ribs, and hearty stews.
