We’ve been fans of Seghesio Family Vineyards for a number of years now. A recent article in Wine Spectator gave me the impetus to reach out to Ted to discuss the exceptional vintages of Zinfandel we’re experiencing. If you love Zinfandel, or would like to learn to, now is a good time to put Northern California Zins on your list. Also, I couldn’t pass up the chance to talk with Ted about his family’s 121 year grape growing and wine making history. They’re one of only a few who made it through Prohibition and are still in business today.

This episode is my full radio show from our recent trip to Lake County, Napa Valley’s more peaceful neighbor to the north. You’ll hear my conversations with Six Sigma Ranch, Hawk and Horse Vineyards, Steele Wines, and Shannon Ridge Family of Wines. It’s a rural area with many wineries near one another yet the region is quite spread out from Lower Clear Lake to Upper Lake. The warm days and cool nights lend to exceptional wines in the hands of the areas experienced wine makers. This episode may, and should, inspire you to visit.
