“All our old-vine Zinfandel is sourced from head-trained, cane-pruned vineyards. Most of them are dry-farmed ranging anywhere from 40 to 80-years-old. What we see from this wine is more intense varietal character, color, flavor, and extraction.”
– Eric Aafedt, Vice President, Winemaking
Head-trained, dry farmed Zinfandel vines planted by early California pioneers have endured for generations, unwavering through myriad challenges and the test of time. Producing small, concentrated clusters of grapes. these vines demonstrate the reward for patience and determination. It is these noble vines that Bogle winemakers rely on to create our intriguing Old Vine Zinfandel.
