Zinfandel

California’s own jack-of-all-trades grape. Zinfandel can produce a wide range of styles from red, white, and rosé wine with varying sweetness levels. A fruit-forward, concentrated and bold, high alcohol red wine loved for it’s “jammy” fruit, smoky, and spice flavors. There has been much confusion and mystery behind Zinfandel’s origins as it is also Primitivo in Italy, and Tribidrag and Crljenak Kaštelanski in Southern Dalmatia. Believed to stem from Croatia, it is closely related to their #1 red wine, Plavac Mali. What’s not confusing is the potential greatness and quality made from this thrilling grape. Zinfandel is a no-brainer pairing with cooking BBQ on the weekends with your loved ones.

Owner and winemaker Chris Brockway’s main goal is to bring out, and show you, the natural expression of the grape. For Chris that means spontaneous fermentation, native yeasts and bacteria and minimal intervention. This wine is made naturally, meaning no use of inoculated yeasts or bacteria. They don’t add any powdered tannins or enzymes. A minimal dose of S02 is added 4 weeks before bottling to some wines.
