Stone Ranch, one of Mazzocco’s pioneer vineyards, is located in the Alexander Valley off Independence Lane near Highway 101. Our long-term relationship with this vineyard and the vineyard manager allows us to have input into the viticultural practices, as well as deciding when our fruit is picked. These are key elements in assuring the ongoing quality of our wines.
Currently, this is our only Zinfandel grown in the Alexander Valley. Since most of our Zins are produced from Dry Creek Valley grapes, the Stone Ranch Zinfandel offers us the opportunity to educate tasting room visitors on how aromas and flavors of the same varietal differ between Dry Creek and Alexander Valleys, and the influence terroir has on each wine.
