Zichichi Winery

This article is one in a series of articles about our recent tour of California Wine Country. You can read about Day 1, Day 2, Day 3, Day 4, the Summary, the Winery Dogs and the Restaurants as well.  

On the second day of touring the Dry Creek region of Sonoma County, we visited Zichichi Family Winery.

In 2000 Steve Zichichi, a doctor from New Orleans and his wife purchased the vineyard and built the winery.  The vineyard is planted in Zinfandel and Petite Sirah with the vines between 40 and 80 years old.  In addition to the wines produced from the vineyard they also make a Cabernet Sauvignon from grapes grown in Napa Valley.  One of the interesting aspects of the tasting was that after we had sampled the wines from the bottle we were also given a barrel tasting of the same wines.
