(2011 Vintage) Named after my dad, this 55-year old vineyard is five acres in size and has a very special place in my heart. Located on a rocky hillside bench on the eastern side of Dry Creek, it’s the place I used to play as a child, and where my son Adam was first introduced to viticulture. The selection of Zinfandel, Carignane and Petite Sirah grown in Gino’s Vineyard represents a traditional field blend my Father made each year.

Wine Spectator(2009 Vintage) “A classically styled Dry Creek Zinfandel, with aromas of wild raspberry and underbrush that lead to rich but elegant flavors of black cherry, anise and smoky cracked pepper. Drink now through 2017.” – Tim Fish, WINE SPECTATOR, December 2011
Wine Enthusiast(2009 Vintage) A fantastic Zinfandel, Sbragia’s best in years, and one of the best of the vintage. Shows classic Dry Creek wild blueberry and briary blackberry flavors, with exotic spices, and the exuberance you want in a Zin. Yet it exhibits a rare control, making it elegant despite the power. Drink now for sheer joy. — S.H. (3/1/2012)
