About Haraszthy Family Cellars:
The Haraszthy family has been in the wine business in Sonoma for six generations. Today, Haraszthy Family Cellars specializes exclusively in the production of hand crafted Zinfandels.
Solus Sto is Latin for "Stand Alone." It has been the Haraszthy Family Motto for many generations and served the family as a guiding winemaking directive.
During their lives in Hungary, the Haraszthy's financial health was tied directly to the health of their vines. Funny how some things don’t change much. Solus Sto was passed down to each generation and spoke to the power of regular visits to each vine in the vineyard – this being truly the best fertilizer. It was important to biologically commune – to inspect the plants and to absorb their vibrations. Solus Sto was insurance against a bad crop.
Today's grape growers utilize state of the art vineyard management techniques and scientific modern advances developed to help maximize quality and production. This is why wine quality has improved in our day. But back then in Hungary it was old school and stood alone. To all its friends, Haraszthy Family Cellars continues to embrace Gypsy based viticultural practices. And yes, they also solute the tremendous strides science and technology have provided us as well. Haraszthy Family Cellars stands alone behind Zinfandel and produces no other grape variety.
