Mountain View Vintners began the association with the vineyard in 1982. Although the winery is best known for offering some of the finest varietal, appellation specific values from California in Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Cabernet and Merlot, the Amador Zinfandel has emerged as our signature item. The initial release of 2003 was limited to 3200 cases, but the availability grew rapidly with the 2006 vintage to 12,000 cases. View all Mountain View Vintners Wines

Called gold country since the mid-1800's, the Sierra Foothills, located between Sacramento and the Nevada border, was a hot spot for those seeking a gold rush fortune. Some of these settlers brought some European vines with them and somewhere in that mix was the Zinfandel grape.
