Rinaldi

Fiddletown, Amador County | 22 acres

Originally established in 1865, this gem of a vineyard sits at 1,600 to 1,800 feet above sea level in the Sierra Foothills of Amador County, one of the oldest Zinfandel growing regions in California. The head-trained, dry-farmed, 100+-year-old vines are naturally self-limiting, producing loose clusters of small, very intensely flavored grapes. The Eschen block, which is well over 100 years old, forms the core of our Fiddletown Zinfandel, while the younger Rene block — planted with cuttings from Eschen — goes into our Rombauer Zinfandel.
