Sbragia Family Vineyards is a fourth-generation endeavor with roots dating back to the 1950s when Gino Sbragia uprooted much of his fruit trees in the Dry Creek Valley and planted Zinfandel vines. While most of his fruit was sold to bulk winemakers, his ambition was to start a winery that produced and bottled wines bearing the family name. While he did not live to see this happen, his son Ed made it his mission to realize his father's dream. After an impressive career in the wine industry that included 32 years as Winemaster at Beringer Vineyard in Napa Valley, Ed, along with his son Adam, built a winery on the property and in 2006 Sbragia Family Vineyards was born. Today, Ed and Adam produce bold Chardonnays, Zinfandels, and Cabernets from their holdings in Napa and Sonoma that reflect their California-influenced winemaking style.
Today's wine is crafted from 100% Chardonnay sourced from the Sbragia's Home Ranch Vineyard, which is located in the southeastern part of the Dry Creek Valley near Dry Creek and the Russian River. Here, the comparatively cooler temperatures bring forth exceptionally well-balanced wines. Aged "sur lie" for 11 months in French oak (50% new) with 100% malolactic fermentation carried out, it is rich and round, with aromas and flavors of red apples, peaches, lemon peel, and pineapple interwoven with notes of honeysuckle and accented by hints of vanilla and toast. Bright acidity that appears on the mid-palate carries the wine to a long and satisfying finish, providing balance and structure.
