Benito Dusi Vineyard

Our Dusi Zinfandel is now bottled and available!  Benito Dusi Vineyards is one of the oldest in Paso Robles.  It consists of 24 acres planted with Zinfandel vines that are almost 100 years old. They are planted in the "old world" style with a small amounts of Carignane, Petite Sirah, Grenache vines in the mix.  The vineyard is run by 89-year-old Benito Dusi who actively manages the vineyard today.  The vineyard is dry farmed, which means that it does not have drip irrigation.  We are honored to know Benito Dusi and thankful that we are able to buy grapes from him.  His vineyard is registered with the Historic Vineyard Society and his zinfandel is preserved as a Heritage Zinfandel Clone.  The wine produced by these grapes is incredible and the result is truly the reason we make wine today.
