The origin of the Zinfandel variety is shrouded in mystery. Many attribute it to the Primitivo variety from the South of Italy but new studies identify it as a variety with origins in Croatia. Whatever its source, Zinfandel grapes succeed in metamorphosing into fascinating wines, especially those sourced from age-old vineyards in California. Our first ever Zinfandel, from the 2007 vintage, was produced following two years of extensive research and development. The vineyard on the Mount Tabor hillside, planted on a clay slope with fluctuating limestone, combined with low yields enabled us to obtain an original and utterly fascinating wine.
