Where Passion and History and Great Zin merge

Sausal Winery, located in beautiful Alexander Valley, is a family run affair - and has been since 1956. Leo Demostene, a second generation winemaker, purchased the Sausal Ranch - a 125 acre ranch that was planted to prunes, apples and zinfandel grapes - in 1956. The 'old vines' date back before 1877 and continue to produce small lots of exquisite, elegant zinfandel even today.

Leo's children, Dave, Ed, Peachie & Cindy, grew up on the ranch and helped their father expand their grape crop by planting scores of zinfandel and cabernet sauvignon. And, the rest is history - the four siblings continue to run and operate the ranch, each having their own but important role. When asked if any of them ever considered moving away or taking on another career, the answer was unanimous - "No way! Why go anywhere else? We already live in paradise! What else is there?" And that's truly the passion that shines through their long history of winemaking.

Sausal is best known for Zinfandel and has been making it way longer than all the rest. If you're a Zin fan, Sausal produces terrific Zins' that you don't want to miss: a 50 year old vine Zin, a 90 year old vine Zin, and the 'cream of the crop' - a 130 year old vine Zin.......there are just no words that can describe this one!
