Grist Vineyard

Grist Vineyard is located within the Dry Creek Valley at the top of Bradford Mountain, 1000 feet above sea level. We source our Zinfandel from the red volcanic soils of Block 6, which was planted in 1974 – before either of us was born. The property is owned by Hambrecht Vineyards and farmed by Warren Burton, an experienced and eminently well-qualified Kiwi. In order to ensure even ripening, which is difficult with Zinfandel, Warren regularly drops unripe clusters and maintains the crop load at around two tons per acre.
