In many ways the story of Seghesio Family Vineyards is the story of the Sonoma County wine industry. It begins with the vision and determination of immigrants and continues through the hardship of Prohibition and the challenges of survival in the 20th and 21st century. It is the story of one family’s adaptation and reinvention, not once, but multiple times. Most of all it is the story of the values we hold dear: heritage, tradition and community. Through five generations and 120 years, Seghesio Family Vineyards has been proud to be part of the vibrant history and fabric of Sonoma County. Seghesio Family Vineyards was established in 1895 when Italian immigrant and winemaker Edoardo Seghesio planted his first Zinfandel vineyard in what is now Seghesio’s Home Ranch Vineyard in Sonoma County’s Alexander Valley. Edoardo and his wife Angela continued to tend their vineyards through Prohibition and were one of approximately 100 wineries to survive that era. Post-prohibition, Seghesio was a key supplier of grapes and bulk wine to large California wineries. The modern era saw fourth generation family member Ted Seghesio make the first wines under the Seghesio label. Under the leadership and guidance of Ted and his cousin Pete, Seghesio Family Vineyards has become renowned for exceptional Zinfandels and Italian varietals. In 2011 Seghesio Family Vineyards joined Crimson Wine Group. Today, in addition to the winemaker, several members of the Seghesio family hold positions, both in the vineyards and winery, including fifth generation family members.
Pale gold in colour. The bouquet shows mineral and dusty nuances which are enhanced with crisp and floral aromas. Complex and full-bodied, the palate has notes of pear and dried apricot. A crisp acidity elevates the wine’s fruit profile and leaves a fresh clean finish.
