After graduating from the California Culinary Academy in San Francisco in 1994, David Cooper and I joined together in pursuit of the perfect small vineyard and winery that we could manage ourselves to bring to life our passion for wine, food and friendship. The treasure of our vineyard is our 40-year old head-trained, dry-farmed Zinfandel vines well known for producing fine wines of extraordinary character and intensity. Our landmark homestead and winery consists of an 1886 Victorian farmhouse and a warm and rustic tasting room enhanced with a stunning valley view. Over the last decade, people like you have happened upon us through word of mouth or on your travels through our wine country and have experienced and enjoyed our hand-crafted wines. During this time, we like to think that we've created something special here: Our family of wines have been critically honored; we've shared some Read more »

  • As many of my fellow Snoothers know, I'm a big fan of the wines of the Dry Creek Valley and particularly of a few of the winemakers up there.  Most of them specialize to a degree in Zinfandel, a grape that has its hard-core fans, but does not get all the recognition of more widely-planted varieties like Cabernet, Syrah, Pinot Noir.  A lot of fol...

  • I generally avoid wine clubs of any sort, even at my favorite wineries--I'm too promiscuous to sign up to drink 12 or 24 botles of someone's wine in a year--but I am a member of Mauritson's Rockpile list, because there's no longer any way to get the Cemetery Zinfandel and good luck getting any of the others, either.  Since I have in-laws up that...
