Stubborn as a Mule

Wine Whore Review:


I am always amazed to discover the rich history of vineyards that have survived generations of life�s challenges. The stories that grow from these families truly demonstrate their dedication to their passion of life.

I am fortunate to have the opportunity to share the story of one such vineyard that has produced distinctive Zinfandel from the hills of Sonoma County's Dry Creek Valley since 1904. I am proud to share the story of four generations and 100-years old vines that have called the soil of Puccioni Vineyards their home.

What lesson has this family learned from its years of dedication?

Generations of loyalty to the sweet purple fruit we all love has taught them one important lesson: �Always follow the Puccioni tradition of stubbornly doing things the right way!�

How does this translate into their wine?

One such newly released example of this pragmatic vineyard has arrived for me taste and share with the world:

Puccioni Dry Creek Valley Sonoma Old Vine Zinfandel 2006

Stay tuned as I discuss the rich history behind this winery and review how this promising selection does it "the right way"!

Also, very special thank you to Glenn and the folks from Puccioni Vineyards for their kindness, support, and willingness to share a glass of their wine for the rest of the world to enjoy.
