Zinfandel – Our Zinfandel has won Double Gold at the San Francisco Chronicle Commercial Wine Competition. It is Dupratt clone on 101-14 rootstock, VSP and cordon pruned to 8×5 spacing and farmed with great pride and best practices. We prune to a yield of 4 tons per acre and we use deficit irrigation practices both which enhanced flavors. $.65 per pound and minimum of 500 lbs. Harvest on the Zin will be late September or early October.
Syrah – We may have a couple tons available this year. It is the fantastic 877 Clone on 101-14 rootstock, VSP and cane pruned to 8×5 spacing and farmed with great pride and best practices. We sell all that we don’t use to a top tier Napa winemaker and this year we have a larger crop so we have a couple extra tons. No watering was necessary this year. $.90 per pound and a minimum of 500 lbs. Harvest will be late September.
We will pick it for you but you must bring your own macro bins or containers. We have a forklift on site and will load for you. Call Les for maturity numbers. We will be taking samples at least weekly from now through harvest.
Come up to our tasting room and taste the estate wines we make from these grapes. You will be glad you did and we would love to meet you.

Grapes for Sale: Zinfandel – Dry Valley AVA (Sonoma County)

Canale Vineyard writes:

Canale Vineyards is a family owned small vineyard in the Dry Valley AVA. The Canale Ranch has been in our family since the 1940’s when my grandfather purchased the property as a prune orchard. But scattered amongst the prune trees he planted zinfandel, grenache, carigangne, and other assorted white vines for his personal winemaking consumption.

Today, we farm primarily zinfandel grapes and a little bit of cabernet. The original zinfandel was planted to St George root stock in the late 1960’s and cabernet in the early 70’s. A portion of the original zinfandel remain and in 2011, 1/2 of the vineyard (1,000 vines) were re-planted to zinfandel, again using St George root stock and field grafted with zinfandel bud wood from the existing and original zinfandel planted in the 1960’s.

Though not certified, we utilize organic farming practices using only elemental sulfur to protect against powdery mildew. Weeds are managed, not eradicated, using labor and not herbicides. The original zinfandel are dry farmed while the newer vines are currently supported with irrigation until they are fully mature, at which point they too will be dry farmed. The result of our style of farming is a vineyard which reflects the feelings of wild Sonoma County while producing a zinfandel that results in a zesty, spicy wine,

Currently we have 2 tons of zinfandel available for $1,500/ton or $.75/lb.
As of 10:00am Friday October 4, 2019 fruit tested at 24 Brix. Grapes are ready for harvest now and will peak over the next week given temperature forecast for the next 7 days.
Fruit is clean, free of mildew/bunch rot.
Small quantities can be accommodated, as well as self-pick arrangements. On-site crushing is also available and is included in price.

The vineyard is located at 2150 West Dry Creek Rd, Healdsburg, CA 95448.
