Winemaker's Notes

At Montevina and in Amador County, Zinfandel is what they do best. Shallow topsoils, granite hardpan, hot summer days, and cool summer nights make a fabulous home for this varietal. Hand selected every year from their many lots of Zin, Montevina Terra d'Oro Zinfandel is the flagship of their Zinfandel program.
