Gnarly Head

Gnarly Head all started with a vine. In 2004, when our winemakers began their quest to make America's favorite Zinfandel, they sought out vineyards in the Zinfandel capital of the world: Lodi, California. The Zinfandel vines planted in these older vineyards are some of the oldest in California and are grown in the traditional freestanding "head-trained" way. These gnarled vines provide the inspiration for Gnarly Head as the wines these older vines create are bold, full-bodied, juicy and in other words, gnarly.

But Zinfandel is not the only grape that can be Gnarly. Our winemakers select grapes from some of the best vineyards in Northern California to produce wines in our Gnarly House Style. Gnarly Head wines are easy to drink and pair well with food. They are Bold. Sophisticated. With a Hint of Gnarly.
