Zinfandel

2012

Anthony Terlato's grandfather, John Giarrusso (1880 - 1931) emigrated from Sicily to Brooklyn with his wife and daughter in 1910, bringing with him a tradition of winemaking and hte culture of sharing wine with family and friends. A butcher by trade, he offered his home-made Zinfandel to his customers, a custom carried on by his grandson and wine producer Tony Terlato. Giarrusso Zinfandel celebrates John and the many men like him who founded an American wine tradition, and is produced from an 8 acre vineyard block from a Terlato Vineyard estate in the Dry Creek Valley.
