It takes exceptional quality grapes to make great wines. And it takes a great relationship between the farmer and the vintner to truly express the potential of a given vineyard. Our winey is built on the principle that the wines are made in the vineyard. We’ve spent decades coming to understand our vineyards, how best to farm them, and how best to craft the wines.
It’s a journey, and it’s far from over.
St.Amant Vineyard – Amador County
We’ve been farming our family vineyard since 1972. It’s located in the Jackson Valley of Amador County. This is where we grow our Portuguese and Spanish varieties for our table and port-styled wines that have defined our winery for the past three decades. The vineyard produces well-structured wines with bright acidity, firm tannins, and vibrant fruit flavors.
Mohr-Fry Ranch - Lodi
Mohr-Fry Ranch is farmed by our good friends Jerry and Bruce Fry. The home ranch sits directly south of the city of Lodi, on a beautiful 225 acre ranch comprised of 9 separate blocks of own-rooted Old Vine Zinfandel dating back to 1901. This vineyard is the source of our most popular wine – Mohr-Fry Ranch Old Vine Zinfandel.
Marian’s Vineyard - Lodi
Marian’s Vineyard is an 8.3 acre own-rooted Old Vine Zinfandel vineyard within Mohr-Fry Ranch. Situated on very sandy soils these vines have survived for over 110 years by consistently producing exceptional quality wines. In our opinion, vineyards like this, are California’s historical treasures.
Leventini Vineyard – Lodi
The Leventini Vineyard is situated north east of the City of Lodi in the Jahant AVA of the Lodi region, and is the source of our Barbera grapes. It was originally planted in 1972 by our dear friend Ted Leventini for one of the “big guys,” but has been a mainstay for St.Amant since 1998. It’s now farmed by our vineyard manager, Todd Williams.
