Winemaker Blaine Brazil Notes
Our Brignole Vineyard was originally planted in 1908 by their family, who were members of the Asti Italian-Swiss Colony cooperative. e grapes are an old style eld-blend of 80% Zinfandel, 10% Petite Sirah, 5% Carignane, 4% Mataro and a 1% smattering of Alicante Bouschet, Muscat Canelli and Golden Chasselas. In those days nobody sold the actual grapes because they are perishable. They sold wine in barrels, blended for the specific taste of the customer. All old vine vineyards are field -blends, because the winegrower planted their own distinct blend of grape varieties to be harvested and fermented together. Every grape grower was a winemaker, too, and thereby known for their signature wine blend.
