Michael Friedrich from Young’s Market will be our guide through the wine and Bryan Leicher & Shari Cyrkin will be playing your favorite songs.
Seghesio Family Vineyards was established in 1895 when Italian immigrant and winemaker Edoardo Seghesio planted his first Zinfandel vineyard in what is now Seghesio’s Home Ranch Vineyard in Sonoma County’s Alexander Valley. Edoardo and his wife Angela continued to tend their vineyards through Prohibition and were one of approximately 100 wineries to survive that era. Post-prohibition, Seghesio was a key supplier of grapes and bulk wine to large California wineries.
The modern era saw fourth generation family member Ted Seghesio make the first wines under the Seghesio label. Under the leadership and guidance of Ted and his cousin Pete, Seghesio Family Vineyards has become renowned for exceptional Zinfandels and Italian varietals.
Today, in addition to Ted as winemaker and Pete as Ambassador, several members of the Seghesio family hold positions, both in the vineyards and winery, including fifth generation family member Ned Neumiller who serves as Seghesio’s Grower Relations & Viticulture Manager.
