USA - Russian River Valley
Red - Vintage: 2017 - Size: 750 ml.
The winery and most of its vineyards are located in the Russian River Valley AVA. The Martinelli family has been growing grapes and farming in the valley since the 1880s, as well as growing other crops such as apples and hops. The farm was founded by Giuseppe Martinelli and Luisa Vellutini who emigrated to California from Tuscany. Looking for a place to start a winery, the couple started by planting Zinfandel and Muscat vines without trellising on a steep hill. That decision earned the hill its modern name, Jackass Hill, and now the Zinfandel from Jackass Hill and Jackass Vineyard produces some of the most recognized Martinelli wines. They are also the only vineyards planted by Giuseppe still in production, and have vines that are over 100 years old.
