Thank you for the feature! We love Carignane and are always excited to meet others that feel the same. The sandy, dry-farmed Evangelho vineyard is home to some of our favorite gnarled and head trained 130-year-old carignane vines. Though Carignane is typically blended with our Zinfandel, we saw (and tasted) something special in these vines and decided to bottle our current 2015 vintage on its own.

5 TO TRY: CARIGNAN

2017 SEPT/OCT ISSUE
Once planted widely across the Mediterranean, California and Chile, Carignan was a high-volume grape that became associated with cheap red blends, and after falling from favor, many vines were ripped out. But of the plantings that remained, producers found that the older the vines got, the better the resulting wines tasted, and Carignan is now garnering well-deserved praise. Ashley Ragovin, L.A.-based sommelier and founder of Pour This wine club, makes a compelling case for Carignan: “You could drink it out of a shoe with almost anything on the table and it satisfies; it’s acrobatic with warm baking spices and dried herbs, brings out the berry goodness in dishes with red fruits and ups the umami twang in meats,” she says. “All that and it’s got Goldilocks for body—it’s just freakin’ right!”

ALE, WINE TRAILS REVEAL OAKLAND'S UNIQUE LOCAL FLAVOR

Welcome to Wine Country! Oakland's Urban Wine Trail is wine country with an urban twist. Stop by our winery while traveling the trail for a chance to see winemaking in action. Our Tasting Room is right in the middle of our Winery... come harvest-time you'll be able to see the grapes and smell the fermentation!

ALE, WINE TRAILS REVEAL OAKLAND'S UNIQUE LOCAL FLAVOR

SF GATE

Imagine tasting wines in unusual spaces like renovated warehouses, art galleries and on a waterfront on an estuary. When you follow the Oakland Urban Wine Trail, that’s exactly what you’ll discover, with nine wineries set in the city proper, including popular destinations like Jack London Square and the historic Swan’s Market.

As a collaboration between the Visit Oakland tourism organization and winemakers of Oakland, the entire trail can be toured over a relaxing two or three days, including time to eat at area restaurants, visit art galleries, and shop at local boutiques in between tastings.

WHY YOU SHOULD PUT ZINFANDEL BACK IN YOUR WINE ROTATION

Thank you, Sara Schneider of Sunset Magazine, for the wonderful article. We've been making single-vineyard zinfandels for over twenty years; our goal has always been to create elegant wines with intense fruit flavors that are long-lived and well balanced and we very much appreciate that you've included us in your list of outstanding zinfandels!

WHY YOU SHOULD PUT ZINFANDEL BACK IN YOUR WINE ROTATION

BY SARA SCHNEIDER

Wine fads come, and wine fads go. I remember as if it were yesterday a colleague saying, “Hey, I’m interested in this Merlot I’ve been hearing about!” (That was about 25 years ago, and we all know how that turned out.) One California wine, though, has survived the crushing vicissitudes of history: It’s Zinfandel, and it’s having a new, and notable, moment as one of the state’s most interesting reds.
