Highlights

  • The fanciful name references the Conradi family who originally developed our property in the late 19th century
  • The Zinfandel grows in our Point Vineyard, an eastern facing, sloping, rocky site that is the warmest spot on our mountaintop estate
  • Aged primarily in French oak barrels, this will be bottled in whatever format the future owner chooses
