Zinfandel Advocates and Producers (ZAP), has declared November 18th as National Zinfandel Day, both to celebrate the many styles of Zinfandel produced across America, and to raise awareness of Old Vine Zinfandel vineyards. Zinfandel continues to play an essential role in our winery, and we are excited to announce our first annual celebration of National Zinfandel Day!
Zinfandel remains once of the most important heritage varieties in American wine history. We are blessed to have access to two of these amazing vineyards. Both the the Mohr-Fry Ranch Home Vineyard (76 years old) and Marian's Vineyard (116 years old) are farmed by the Mohr-Fry family, with an intense dedication to quality, and preservation of these heritage vineyards.
Unfortunately many heritage vineyards are destroyed each year. In the face of increasing threats to these ancient vineyards we are working to raise awareness of the few remaining old vineyards, and help preserve our rich heritage. Read here about the looming destruction of these ancient vineyards.
We will feature a vertical tasting of both our Mohr-Fry Zinfandel, and our famous Marian's Vineyard Zinfandel. Join us to taste these wonderful wines, and learn how you can help preserve Lodi's Old Vine Zinfandel.
Join us, along with thirteen Lodi wineries to celebrate International Tempranillo Day, November 10th through November 12th, and explore the many interesting styles of Tempranillo.
