Marietta Cellars is located just outside the little town of Geyserville in one of California’s premier wine growing regions, Sonoma County. Owner and winemaker Chris Bilbro initially founded Marietta Cellars in 1978 in a rented cow barn in the Dry Creek Valley. The wines of Marietta Cellars are a personification of Chris Bilbro, his outlook on life, and general lifestyle. No wine is complete on its own; pleasurable pursuits such as cooking, fishing, hunting, gardening, and entertaining add balance to wine, as they do to life. To this day, no wine gets bottled without Chris’s approval and no vineyard row goes more than a week without Chris riding his ATV through it. Read less

External Reviews for Marietta Cellars Red Blend California Old Vine Red Lot Number 51

External Review
Vintage: 1952 11/27/2012

Deep berry and plum and peppery spice as well as hints of mild spicy and toasty oak, dusty earth, and a light gamey quality that add to the complexity. Deep ruby and purple, and the mouthfeel is forward, dense, and rustic and ripe in a Zin-like style.

Zinfandel based blend, smooth on the mouth and rich and vibrant on the nose. It has a particularly supple balance of fruit, spice, and texture.
