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 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Very dark "black plum" color in the glass. Oaky nose with slight hints of blackberries. Lots of fruit on the initial palate--blackberries and raisins (giving it sweetness). Fairly stern as it moves over the palate--some tannin and some acid. OK wine, but not my favorite from this maker. US$19.99 from the Wine Club in Santa Ana. Read More

    Great soft ages to perfection (2006). Soft tannins, Current, plum, black cherry. Strong finish. A wine you will not soon forget, and other Vintners can only dream about creating. Great! Read More

  • The Zinner party was last night, but preparations began a week or two ago when I realized I had accumulated some Zins that needed consuming.  I had been lured by a cellar sale on BPWine that featured a ton of Turley wines from different vineyards at really attractive prices.  By the time I pulled the trigger, the best values appeared to be a 200...

  • Being a cab lover I am hesitant to stray from what I like. On a recent occasion I had the opportunity to try a Zinfandel and to my amazement, it had some of the same attributes of the cabernets I love so well. I perused Snooth and stopped on a particular zin from Bogle vineyards. Gregory Dal Piaz gave it a nice rating and being a member of Snoot... Read More

  • Seghesio Family Vineyards Zinfandel Dry Creek Valley Cortina 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Paired this wine with a 10oz New York Steak and a Caesar salad. I've been reading all this time about how the right pairing is a magical experience. The waitress seemed skeptical about our choice, but our simultaneous "wow!" confirmed that it was a perfect match. The wine was Jammy, and fruit filled as expected, but this wine complimented the...
