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.

  • 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

  • Seghesio Zinfandel Monte Rosso Sonoma Valley 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Smoky and dark on the nose with aromas of dried meat, juniper, coffee and spice over a tight black currant and blackberry base notes. On entry this is elegant and lively with brushy little tannins. Quite clear on the palate but muscular with a deep earthy mineral vein that cuts through lovely fresh raspberry and currant fruit. Very soil driven... Read More

    Snoothrank:

    Tight on the nose, and earthy with crushed blackberry fruit, a hint of wood spice, juniper and tobacco nuances. A bit loose in the mouth with some woody tannins well buffered by nice richness of blackberry fruit that is almost jammy in the mouth. With nice acid and light mineral and woodsy spice on the moderately long slightly sweet styled fini... Read More

  • Seghesio Family Vineyards Zinfandel Sonoma County 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Creamy cherry fruit is joined by a nice spicy note on the nose offering just a hint of wood and a little blueberry. Full and fruity in the mouth delivering clear black berry fruit with soft tannins though this turns a touch bitter and extracted on the backend, then a little creamy on the raw, modest finish. Perhaps a bit young. Might improve. ... Read More

  • Seghesio Family Vineyards Zinfandel Sonoma County 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Quite dark black plum color. Earthy, woody aromas. Noticeable blackberry fruit on the tip of the tongue, but that diminishes fairly quickly. Nice mouth-filling roundness. Firm, but not overbearing tannin. Sufficient acid to make it a good food match. This is a terrific wine. Slight bitterness on the back of the palate makes it seem more r... Read More

  •  We had a plan, get in early, get out early. It seems like a lot of people had the get in early plan. In years past we would show up around 11:15, park close and hit the tent before the crowd built. Well not this year. The front parking lot filled up as we approached so we parked across the road and hoofed it in. The place was a zoo from the mom... Read More
