Located in California’s Lodi region, our vineyards are between 30 to 50 years old. Here our ancient, head-trained vines yield only a few grape clusters; each with small, intensely flavored berries. As a result, Four Vines Old Vine Zinfandel is bold in both flavor and body. At harvest time, grapes were picked during the cool night and early morning hours and delivered immediately to the winery to be destemmed and gently pressed into fermentation tanks. After seven to nine days of fermentation, the wine was gently racked into a combination of French, Hungarian and American oak for malolactic fermentation and ten months of aging.

California's Central Coast is a vast, rugged landscape stretching from Santa Barbara north to Monterey Bay. It's wild country with a gorgeous coastline and few towns. Wide open with fertile farming soil and abundant ranchland, this place attracted more than just farmers and cowboys it also attracted artists, rebels, seekers and bon vivants from the Bay Area and the Los Angeles sprawl. The confluence of their unique personalities put a stamp on the burgeoning wine region and today, rule-breaking and non-conformity are celebrated values. Four Vines honors the anti-establishment views of the Central Coast's eccentric personalities. We make interesting wine, for interesting people.
