Overview of the Wine                                                                     
Since 1868, the Mauritson family has been growing grapes in the Dry Creek Valley. Our great-great-great grandfather S.P. Hallengren, a grape growing pioneer in the Rockpile region, first planted vines in 1884, shipping every ounce of his wine back to Sweden. Our family's Rockpile homestead and ranch grew to 4,000 acres by the early 1960s when all but 700 ridgetop acres was acquired by the Army Corps of Engineers in order to develop Lake Sonoma. The vineyards shown in many of our historical family photos are now under water! For the next 30 years, the Rockpile property would serve mostly for sheep grazing.

Six generations and more than 150 years later, we're earning a reputation for outstanding winemaking along with our sought-after harvests. Opened in April 2004, our winemaking facility and tasting room is located at 2859 Dry Creek Road, on the corner of Dry Creek and Lytton Springs roads in Healdsburg. We can't wait to welcome you and share our wines.

The early part of the 2019 growing season was marked by numerous days of heavy rainfall. While our typical annual total is around 40 inches, by mid-March that was easily exceeded by 10+ inches. Cooler days, in combination with the saturated soil profile, led to slow growth after budbreak in early April. However, momentum quickly grew as above-average temperatures hit in late April followed by bouts of rain in May, threatening the development of the blossoms into fruit.

Tasting Notes
Our 2019 Dry Creek Zinfandel opens to an engaging bouquet of fresh blackberry, lilac blossom, powdered sugar and a pulse of dried herb. Black cherry, shavings of vanilla pod with ground coffee marry perfectly with the refined tannins and beautiful staying power of this wine! Enjoy for the next 7-10 years.
