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.

  • As a rule of thumb I decant every wine bottle north of $50 for at least 45 mins. During the 45 mins we usually enjoy half a glass of a daily drinker to get our palate ready for the really good stuff. Thoughts on this approach would be great? What's your approach other than PNP.....   Read More

  • Seghesio Zinfandel Home Ranch 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Big nose with lots of berry fruit and bramble. Big fruit on the tongue/palateblack raspberry, blueberrybut not syrupy. Well-structured multi-faceted wine. Fruit is modulated by woodiness and drying tannins. Then I realize that the acid makes me want to take another sip. Darned good wine that meets my expectation for a Seghesio. Read More

  • Greg, don't even read this!Yesterday I hosted a pinot noir event.  It was a blind tasting of three BC and one California.  Talk about getting out of the box.  For me this is tantamount to cross-dressing.  It started because Chester introduced me to the Kettle Valley "Hayman" reserve Pinot last year.  I really liked it, so when I found one (83 ca...

  • Seghesio Zinfandel Sonoma Rockpile 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Big, juicy Rockpile zin by Seghesio. Black cherry and black licorice on the nose. Loads of ripe black cherry, blackberry, black plum, more licorice/anise, some earthiness, nice acidity, fine grained tannins and a medium long finish. Read More

    Best entry level for a quality Zin. Seghesio's Zins only get better as you move up. All, and I mean all, others go down from here. Read More

  • Seghesio Zin Rockpile 2008

    Snoothrank:

    Fairly big nose showing typical Zinfandel black fruit. Blackberry and black plum with some spicy flavors under the palate. Also, though, I can taste the alcohol. I have to say, though, the lengthy finish is delightful. I think this has gone downhill a bit since I last had it. Read More

  • Seghesio Zinfandel Sonoma Rockpile 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Red fruit and a bit of alcohol on the nose. Red fruit on the palate with some spice and balancing acid. Soft tannins and a smooth finish. The second day the wine developed a bit more fruit and the tannins softened. I upgraded my star count a half point. Really nice wine. Read More

    Snoothrank:

    Very dark purple in the glass. Fruity and volatile nose. Somewhat unusual fruit flavors on introduction to the palate. Im getting more strawberry and red raspberry when I normally get blackberry from Zinfandel. This seems to give it a lighter feel than I normally see in Zin. As it passes from mid-palate to back of the throat Im getting alco... Read More
