Located in Sonoma County, California, Lake Sonoma Winery was founded in 1977 by Robert and Mary Lou Polson. The estate was completely rebuilt in 1999 and is currently owned by Dan Zepponi and Tony Stewart. Winemaker Greg Winter graduated from University of California at Davis with a degree in Viticulture and Enology. Scott McLeod and Tres Goetting are consulting winemakers. The wines are produced from estate vineyards located in the Russian River, Dry Creek and Alexander Valley appellations. Additional fruit is sourced from respected local growers.
The Dry Creek Valley region of Sonoma County has distinguished itself as a premier appellation for growing Zinfandel. The north-south orientation of the valley limits the daytime coastal fog influence, providing warm to hot days for ripening the grapes for robust red wines. Yet the nights still cool enough to allow for the retention of color and acidity. The distinctive jammy and spicy flavors are consistently evident in the grapes we source for the Lake Sonoma Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel.
