Seghesio Family Vineyards Zinfandel Cortina 2012 | Wiki & Review | Everipedia

In 1957, our family purchased 56 acres in the heart of Dry Creek Valley. Since the early 1900s, our fathers had purchased fruit from growers in this Valley and recognized the area's great potential for Zinfandel. Here, late afternoon coastal cooling follows long hours of sunshine and enables the fruit to mature slowly during the summer months. Cortina, the dominant soil type of our vineyard, is a gravelly loam that contributes to Dry Creek Valley's reputation as one of the finest places in the world to grow Zinfandel. [+]
