Our small, family-owned ranch on the western Rutherford benchland of California’s Napa Valley produces organically certified Zinfandel, Cabernet, Petite Sirah, and Petit Verdot grapes, olives, Meyer lemons, and exotic pomegranate cultivars. Tres Sabores: the “Three Flavors” in any wine: those of the Terroir, the Artisan, and the Varietal. We’ve made single-vineyard wines since 1999.
Single vineyard bottlings of Zinfandel are wonderful vehicles for exploring one’s passion for taste and complexity in a wine. Zin is delightfully impressionable and takes up the contributions of terroir and artisan in a particularly refreshing way. Zinfandel is a discovery grape and gets the Darwin award for adapting to its particular terroir and thriving on it. It has the capacity to produce fresh, berry-forward, spicy wines of great character. At Tres Sabores, as stewards of the land, we’re devoted to exploring the character of the grapes we grow and producing wines that truly reflect the “voice” of the vineyard. Goats, Sheep, Guinea Hens, Golden Retrievers, Bobcats, Red-Tailed Hawks, Bluebirds, swallows and a host of other denizens contribute mightily to our efforts.
We’d love to welcome you to the winery! Julie Johnson & family
