In honor of the many old Zinfandel vineyards that were overlooked for decades in Sonoma County due to prohibition, our Forgotten Vines blend is comprised of several exemplary mature vineyards. These heritage vineyards were first planted in the late 1800s and early 1900s in the warmer reaches of the region. Planted as field blends, Zinfandel is the primary varietal planted, but not the only varietal. Petite Sirah, Carignane, Alicante Bouchet and even some native vines can also be found in some of the vineyards. The vineyards are harvested separately and remain separate throughout fermentation and aging until the final Forgotten Vines blend is crafted.
