The Seghesio Family Vineyards have a rich history, dating back to 1895 when Edoardo Seghesio and his wife Angela purchased their home in Alexander Valley, part of Sonoma County. They didn’t buy the land for the house - they bought it for the 56 acres that were ideal vineyard land. That year, the land’s first grapes were planted - Zinfandel. In 1902, Seghesio Winery was founded, but the Seghesios didn’t stop there. In 1910 they acquired even more land, in the region known as Chianti, California. On that land, they planed Sangiovese, Canielao Nero, Trebbiano and Malvasia, making the it the oldest planting of Sangiovese in North America. Six months before Prohibition, Seghesio took a gamble and made a significant purchase - a 4,000,000 gallon capacity winery with 1,100 acres of vineyards from his former employer, Italian Swiss Colony. Unfortunately, Prohibition hit harder than Seghesio expected, and he was forced to completely sell off his shares in the winery by 1933.

In 1983, the company changed drastically, when Ted and Peter Seghesio decided to shift the winery’s focus to high-quality production and much smaller lots, producing wine under the Seghesio label for the first time. Ted became the both the winemaker and the deliverer of wine, and with the help of Peter, a successful distribution network was formed. After tending to over 400 acres of vineyards across many regions, Seghesio Family Vineyards has become a large, successful vineyard with fourth generation winemakers.

  • Seghesio Family Vineyards Zinfandel Sonoma County 2008

    Snoothrank:

    Very rich ruby color. Quite fruity on the tongue/palatelots of blackberry and prune. It comes close to being a jammy Zin, but, thankfully, stops just short of that. Serious tartness (think sour peach) emerges at the back of the palate. A very lengthy finish. A good, sturdy, wine, but not one that I would lust for more. Read More

  • Seghesio Family Vineyards Zinfandel Sonoma County 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Nice blend of fruit--raspberries, plums. Maybe just a tad fruitier than I prefer, but this will appeal to many. Very tame tannin and very light on the acid suggests to me that this is a drink-it-now. Read More

  • Hello everyone.  My name is Tom.  My wife and I enjoy finding new wines and cherishing old favorites.  We've been drinking "good" wines for about ten years and have distinctly different tastes.  I prefer dry reds while she likes fruity, but not sweet whites and Champagne.  Looking forward to reading reviews and sharing my tastes with the rest of...

  • Seghesio Family San Lorenzo Zinfandel Premier 2007

    Snoothrank:

    Seghesio San Lorenzo Alexander Valley 2006 Zinfandel is one of the top five wines I have drunk in Europe or California. Wine Spector rates it 92 upon release, and I would rate it 99 after aging to 2013. I doubt you can buy this anywhere for $100.? Read More

  • It's not often that I have a plan. Well, a detailed plan at least.. Some sort of a plan not being a requirement for those in this business. But a detailed plan, and over-arching theme for a visit to wine country can certainly come in handy.  This month’s, or rather last month’s theme was, surprisingly enough: Zinfandel. I say surprisingly becaus... Read More

  • Seghesio Family Vineyards Zinfandel Home Ranch Alexander Valley 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Soft cafe au lait oak nose, features a hint of caramel and smoke layered over dark plummy, chocolate tinged fruit. The nose here is just a hint porty and pruny. Soft, broad and old viney in the mouth with nice clarity to the fresh blackberry black raspberry fruit. This picks up a savory, vegetal note on the mid-palate that gets covered with cle... Read More

  • Seghesio Family Vineyards Old Vines Zinfandel Sonoma County 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Oily and deep on the nose which is filled with jammy wild blackberry and black currant fruit, along with hints of charcoal and poppy seeds. This is very black fruited and shows more oak on the nose than the single vineyards. Soft and rich and very black fruited yet bright on the palate with lots of black raspberry fruit thats a little chewy and ... Read More

  • Year after year Seghesio produces wonderful zinfandel wines. I don't have a favorite. The different vineyards, of course, have different characteristics, but they are consistently good wines--aged or right off the shelf. I've never tried any of their other wines. Shame on me. I will fix that.

  • One of our favorites. We did the food pairing this last time we were in town and got the chance to meet Ruth Ann and talk about the history of Seghesio...it was a wonderful time that one should experience if they are ever in Healdsburg. The food by the way, was delicious and of course, the wine pairings - perfect!

  • Seghesio Zin's have my vote for the best wine to accompany a grilled burger smothered in blue cheese; yummy!
