Mancini Vineyard

Mancini vineyard was planted in 1922 with a wide variety of grapes, mostly red, and some white. Inter-planted with unknown varieties of grapes, this vineyard produces true field blend wines, but is predominantly Zinfandel. Located on Olivet road in the Russian River Valley, the cool nights and clay soils create fruit of balance, elegance and complexity. Carol was very excited to have access to this amazing old vineyard!
