About the Wine

Are you a Zin lover? Wrap your palate around this delicious wine from one of the oldest Zinfandel vineyards in California.

Piedra Creek Winery is owned by a WWII veteran, Romeo Zuech, Italian by nationality, American by heart. Romeo was a successful and passionate aerospace engineer who made great contributions to NASA. Later, he transferred that passion to the wine business.

In 1983, Piedra Creek Winery began as a small winery in the Edna Valley of San Luis Obispo, California. Little by little, its small productions started gaining popularity thanks to a demandingwork philosophy: Only the best fruit to make the best wines. 

After 30 years of experience in the wine industry, years and years of hard work as a winemaker and vine grower, Romeo has achieved the growth and recognition of this estate. "Doesn’t take a rocket scientist to make a great wine… but it certainly doesn’t hurt." Romeo says. He is passionate and obsessive about wine production starting in the vineyard followed by clean fermentations under a watchful until the wine is bottled. 

San Floriano is the 2.5 acre Pinot Noir vineyard owned by Piedra Creek Winery in Edna Valley. And, given their long-term relationships, they're one of only two commercial wine producers to have access to the Benito Dusi ancient vines.

Benito Dusi is one of the most famous vineyards in Paso Robles. Here, the Zinfandel thrives with 90-year old vines. Actually, it is one of the oldest and most exclusive Zinfandel vineyards!

Tasting notes: Red Wine. 100% Zinfandel. Elegant layers of wild berry and raspberry make up this fruit-forward Zinfandel. Just the right hint of white pepper rounds out the experience, a balance that can only be provided from the famous Benito Dusi 90-year-old dry-farmed, head-pruned, ancient Zinfandel vines.

Reviews

This is balanced Zinfandel. It is not high alcohol, overly extracted, or syrupy sweet. There is core fruit that is pure joy, bing cherry, dried plum, fig, and a deft touch of oak and vanilla. The wine is perfect for BBQ or drinking on its own. This Zinfandel is the envy of many Zinfandel producers in CA.
