Food Pairings for Seghesio Family Vineyards Petite Sirah Alexander Valley San Lorenzo
In 1896, Frank Passalacqua purchased a young vineyard in Southernmost Alexander Valley for the sum of ten gold coins. As was the custom of the time, the vineyard was planted to Zinfandel with a planting of Petite Sirah alongside for blending. Passalacqua named the vineyard “San Lorenzo” for his hometown in Italy. Sixty years later, his granddaughter, Rachel Ann Passalacqua, met Eugene “Pete” Seghesio when he purchased grapes from the San Lorenzo vineyard. The couple was soon married. Today, Seghesio Farms manages that same vineyard and produces the highly acclaimed San Lorenzo Zinfandel.
