Winemaker Notes

The 1999 Ironstone Vineyards Zinfandel is selected from head-trained, old vines. This traditional viticultural practice produces grapes characteristically known for exceptional, concentrated flavors and unprecedented, unique depth. Flavors of boysenberries and cherries, with fleeting hints of white pepper and cinnamon, are further enhanced by rotary fermentation. Rotary fermenters bring out the succulent fruitiness of fully mature, Lodi Zinfandel grapes. French oak aging provides balance and structure for this full-bodied wine. While enjoyable now, Ironstone Vineyards Zinfandel will further develop with bottle aging.

Ironstone John and Gail Kautz Winery Image

The story of Ironstone Vineyards started in the hands of John Kautz, a young row crop farmer from Lodi who saw the future in growing wine grapes in Lodi. With 12 acres in 1948, John quickly built an excellent reputation as a premium wine grape supplier, amassing over 5,000 acres of grapes in Lodi and the Sierra Foothills and eventually becoming one of the top ten wine grape growers in California.

In 1988, John, his wife Gail and their children dedicated themselves to the creation of a wine of their own. While still maintaining grape sales to top wineries around the world, they brought award-winning winemaker Steve Millier aboard to launch Kautz wines, which would evolve into Ironstone Vineyards, a wine brand dedicated to the production of exceptional wines of unparalleled quality, outstanding value and everyday approachability.

In 1989, using dynamite, pick axes and shovels, a crew of miners carved through limestone and Calaveras Schist Rock on Gail’s family ranch in Murphys, California and fashioned the site of Ironstone’s wine aging caverns, which in the beginning, also served as the facility’s first tasting room., Ironstone Wines and the Ironstone Winery have each grown and become famous in their own way. John, Gail and each of their four children - Stephen, Kurt, Jack, and Joan - remain actively involved in the growth of both the winery facility and the wine brand.
