Today, Jim and Phyllis produce over 1500 cases of wine from grapes grown in Sonoma County's Dry Creek and Alexander Valleys. Deux Amis specialized in producing outstanding Zinfandels. It is the varietal that comes with the stamp of Sonoma County firmly imprinted upon it. A small amount of Petite Sirah is blended into Deux Amis Zinfandel for added depth and complexity.
