Pesenti Vineyard, Paso Robles

This certified organic estate-owned vineyard was planted in the 1920’s on primarily limestone soil. Though the vines are head-trained and dry-farmed, the soil plays the most important role in distinguishing this vineyard on the west side of Paso Robles. The wines have a brightness, with chalk and floral aromas unique to the site, and to Zinfandel in general.

A little history...

Once upon a time, Paso Robles was under water. Whales swam where we now grow grapes! The land itself is composed of ancient uplifted seabed (calcaerous mudstone), which creates an idyllic soil profile in a Mediterranean-style climate. Frank Pesenti purchased this ranch in 1919, and in 1922, he sent for his wife, Catarina, to join him.
