LOCATION

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.


PAIRINGS

Braised Beef Short Ribs with Gremolata

These slow-braised beef short ribs finished with an herby gremolata sauce are fantastic with Guadagni’s rich, full body and notes of pepper and tobacco.
