Chuck and Anne McMinn acquired the stewardship of Vineyard 29 in 2000 and began its evolution from a single vineyard to a full scale winery. In 1989, Teresa Norton and Tom Paine came to Napa Valley to retire - a dream that was quickly replaced by another when they learned their estate was prime cabernet sauvignon territory. In a matter of weeks, they were putting in a 3-acre vineyard under the watchful eye of lauded vineyard manager David Abreu and, within a year, planting cuttings from neighbors, Grace Family Vineyards. The first release in 1992 was warmly received by press and public alike. The turn of the century ushered in the next phase of Vineyard 29. Along with the Vineyard 29 property, Chuck and Anne acquired the historic Aida vineyard in 2000 as a perfect complement to the Vineyard 29 site for expansion of the winery’s portfolio. With a new, state-of-the-art winemaking facility, and the unquestionable skill of winemaker Philippe Melka, all the pieces were in place for Chuck and Anne to lead Vineyard 29 to a new and exciting level of winemaking. Today, we continue to pride ourselves on caring for fruit down to the single berry and believe in the crafting of memorable wines from the vineyard soil up. Read less

We are firm believers that great winemaking begins in the vineyard. Our commitment to this belief is manifested in our diligent care and attention to our vines and developing grapes. Our 35-year-old, dry-farmed zinfandel vines respond toour care by producing gorgeous fruit, allowing us to present an elegant and refined zinfandel to you with every vintage.True to the Aida vineyard, our 2007 zinfandel opens with lovely fragrant notes of white flowers and lilac before unveilingcandied orange peel and baking spices. A rich mouth feel is enchanted with red fruits, strawberries and a hint of driedcranberry along with plump plums and ripe blueberries. Aging in French oak puncheons provides a wonderful balanceof toastiness and roundness. This slight touch of toast reveals itself on the finish and further enhances this delicatezinfandel.Drink now and for the next 5 to 7 years.
