Dry Creek Valley, Sonoma County

HISTORY

Owned and farmed by the Guadagni family for over fifty years, this vineyard grows in the rocky soils at the northern edge of the Dry Creek Valley. Planted primarily to zinfandel; petite sirah from an adjacent parcel was added this year for color and depth. We limited pump-overs to once daily and pressed after eight days of fermentation as color and tannin were plentiful.

Food

A casual, delicious dinner that’s great with glass of zinfandel is our recipe for Grilled Hangar Steak Quesadillas. The addition of blue cheese and carmelized onions make this dish a perfect pairing for Gaudagni’s rich, soft tannins and blackberry notes.
