Old Vine Zinfandel

Bacigalupi Vineyard

Owned by Helen & Charles Bacigalupi since 1948, this is a benchmark vineyard in Sonoma County and the Russian River Valley. The terrain ranges from gentle rolling hills to extreme hillsides. City Winery’s grapes are planted on hillside sites and are dry farmed. Zinfandel has become something of a cult grape in California among lovers of massive, teeth-staining red wines.
