ABOUT THE WINE

In many ways the story of Seghesio Family Vineyards is the story of the Sonoma County wine industry. It begins with the vision and determination of immigrants, and continues through the hardship of Prohibition and the challenges of survival in the 20th and 21st Centuries. Most of all, it is the story of the values our local wine community holds dear: heritage, tradition and community. Through five generations and 120 years, Seghesio Family Vineyards has been proud to be part of the vibrant history and fabric of Sonoma County.

Seghesio Family Vineyards is proud to offer this first-ever Dry Creek “Benchland” Zinfandel from the spectacular 2016 vintage. This one-of-a-kind Zinfandel represents the first time the family has carved out a wine exclusively from this vineyard on the Dry Creek Bench. This lot consists of only five cases, handcrafted by fourth generation General Manager Ted Seghesio and Winemaker Andy Robinson.
