South of the town of Geyserville in Alexander Valley, Sonoma County


Tim Boatman’s grandparents, Emilia and Eugene Moretti, emigrated from the mountain town of San Pellegrinetto, Italy in the early 1900s. In 1935, Emilia and Eugene were able to acquire this fifty acre ranch that sits in the hills on the border of Dry Creek Valley and Alexander Valley. Eugene used the property for wood cutting and when he passed away he left the property to Tim’s mother and uncle. Tim purchased the property from them in the mid-sixties, when he was only nineteen years old. In 1972, Tim Boatman planted fifteen acres of zinfandel on the steep hillsides that surround his house. The rocky, east-facing terraces are ideal for growing intense, concentrated fruit.

Zinfandel Chronicles – 95 Points

“Brilliant nose of red and black fruits, apricots and licorice. Medium body with mouth watering acidity. Exceptionally smooth and balanced. Black cherry, raspberry, earth and white pepper on the palate. Tremendous length on the finish. Approachable now but this will certainly age well. Best over the next 5-7 years.” -Tom Lee (March 2024)
