Pellegrini Wine Company
Zinfandel

Pellegrini wines have earned a reputation for consistent quality. Their wines are made from grapes sourced from select vineyards in Russian River Valley & Sonoma County, including Olivet Lane Vineyard. The winemaking style emphasizes balance over power and exhibit regional characteristics representative of the appellations.

Pellegrini wines have won numerous gold medals and trade press accolades. They are dedicated to making small-lot wines, handcrafting vineyard designated Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from our estate-grown grapes and regional appellation blends. To enhance the fruit character of the grapes, fermentation is conducted in small five-ton open top tanks.

After a five-day cold maceration, the native yeast from the vineyard began fermenting spontaneously. For the next 14 days, the must was punched down three times a day to extract all the color and flavors from the skins. The wine was aged in a combination of American and Hungarian oak, about ten percent of which was new wood.
