Ray Teldeschi Ranch – Dry Creek Valley

The Ray Teldeschi Ranch is located in mid Dry Creek Valley, beginning close to the valley floor and running up the hills to the east. With numerous blocks and varieties, we source both Zinfandel and Grenache from this vineyard. Our Zinfandel comes from the oldest remaining block on the ranch, planted in the 1880s! The Grenache we purchase (ENTAV 362/Tablas D clone) comes from what we call the Tundra Block, thanks to a Toyota Tundra missing the corner and taking out several rows of vines. Given the warmth of Dry Creek Valley, this vineyard typically provides our first Zinfandel and Grenache of the year.
