Best of the Best, blend exhibiting classic structure and Seghesio style symmetry, Complex bouquet of dark fruit and briery spice, mocha toffee and bread-out-of-the-oven nuance. Strength of fruit: blackberry essence and cherry pie. Spice rack mélange of cloves, anise and cinnamon. Good tannic ripeness balanced by ripe fruit and rich acidity Full-bodied, layered and worthy of aging.( Ted Seghesio)



Vintage 2006 was our latest vintage since 1981. A late bud break followed by virtually daily rain in April set the vines behind normal. Fortunately, the tightest bloom window in a decade set a more uniform crop. A summer heat wave was moderated by a mild August and September enabling the grapes to develop optimum flavors and soft ripe tannins.

Wijngoed informatie "The Seghesio Story begins in 1886 when Edoardo Seghesio departed his familys vineyards in Piedmonte, Italy for a new life in America. Like so many immigrants, he was drawn to Northern Sonoma County and the Italian Swiss Colony, to follow his passion for winemaking. The colony, as it was known, hired immigrants for three year stints, providing room and board and then, a lump sum at the end of those three years enabling employees to buy land or set up a business in their new home. Soon, Edoardo rose through the ranks to winemaker. Yet, he yearned for home. The Colonys manager repeatedly encouraged him to stay and finally, it was his niece and the opportunity to purchase land that convinced Edoardo to remain. That young girl, Angela Vasconi and Edoardo were married in 1893. In 1895, they purchased a modest home in northern Alexander Valley, less for the home than the surrounding 56 acres Edoardo recognized as ideal vineyard land. They planted the Home Ranch that year to what has become our familys lifeline Zinfandel. Edoardo remained at the Colony while building his own winery in the evenings after work. Upon its completion in 1902, the young couple began Seghesio Winery while raising their five children. In 1910, they acquired additional acreage surrounding the bustling train station in what was then Chianti, California. Edoardo, appropriately, planted the 10 acres to the Chianti field blend of Sangiovese, Canielao Nero, Trebbiano and Malvasia. That vineyard, we call Chianti Station is North Americas oldest planting of Sangiovese. In the years preceding Prohibition, the business flourished and the Seghesio Family gained a reputation for quality wine and their generosity toward others getting their start in this fledgling industry. Six months prior to Prohibition, and convinced it could not last more than a year, Edoardo made a decision to purchase his former employer, Italian Swiss Colony. The Colony with a 4,000,000 gallon capacity winery and its 1100 acres of vineyards were quite a value at $127, 500. As Prohibition prevailed, however, the debt was too much for Edoardo to bear. In 1920, he brought on partners, his brother-in-law, Enrico Prati, and the Rossi Family who were previous owners and at whose request Edoardo came to America. Edoardo sold his shares in 1933. Upon repeal of Prohibition, the family once again opened the doors of the winery and Seghesio was making a come back. Unfortunately, Edoardo passed away in 1934 leaving the winery and all property to Angela. From then, Angela and her sons, Arthur, Frank and Eugene continued making wines and shipping via the railroad. With their hard-earned knowledge, they added vineyards when they could purchase them without debt. In 1949, they purchased a second winery facility in Healdsburg to enable them to keep up with the growing demand for their wines. In January 1958, the newspaper headlines read that Sonoma Countys wine industry had lost its matriarch when Angela passed away. Angelas legacy as an industry leader and a great chef lives on in her grandchildren. Her sons formed a partnership based on the ideals of their parents, family, hard work and passion for the industry. From the time of Angelas death until the mid 1970s, the Seghesio Family flourished in the bulk wine business, producing most of the red wine made in Sonoma County. At their largest, 1,700,000 gallons were produced between the original winery in Chianti and the Healdsburg winery. Yet, as the industry evolved, so did the Seghesio family when in 1983, the first wines were bottled under the Seghesio label at the hands of Ted Seghesio, a fourth generation family winemaker. Ted was the not only the winemaker but sold and delivered wine. In 1986, his cousin Peter Seghesio joined the business and began to set up a distribution network nationwide. By 1993, the Seghesio brand had grown to 130,000 cases of not only the familys zinfandel and Italian varietals, but also Chardonnay, Cabernet, Sauvignon Blanc and both red and white table wine. It was in that year that the younger generation was given control of the winery. Fortunately, they too shared a passion for the land and a desire to produce wines they were passionate about. They turned their focus to the vineyards and eliminated all but the wines we grow reducing production to 30,000 cases. Today, we are proud to passionately produce almost exclusively estate wines, some from those same vineyards Edoardo and Angela first planted in the late 1800s. "
