Congratulations to Peter Seghesio!

97 Points! The Wine Spectator announced the PEARL as the HIGHEST RATED ZIN EVER!

After the sale of Seghesio Winery in 2011 Peter Seghesio and family have truly been busy. While a non-compete agreement kept him from producing Zinfandel wine, they began production of Chardonnay under the Journeyman label in 2013. It rated 93 points. It has become a favorite of ours.

After the non-compete restriction expired Seghesio began releasing two Zinfandels: San Lorenzo Zinfandel Alexander Valley Rock Garden  and San Lorenzo The Pearl Old Vine Alexander Valley. The grapes come from some of the oldest grown in the valley – the historic San Lorenzo Vineyard dating back to 1896. The first two vintages, 2014 and 2015, won high scores and the 2016 releases scored a Wine Spectator 97 for The Pearl and 94 for Rock Garden.

Peter and his family not only produce excellent wines they also established a meat production plant in Cloverdale and opened a retail shop in downtown Healdsburg – Journeyman Meat Co. in 2017. A trip there is a must to pick up your wines and to taste.
