About This Winery
There is a homey feel to this historic family-run winery, where you can taste a range of Zinfandels and Italian-style wines while enjoying their tree-shaded property right in town.
Just a few blocks away from the quaint downtown square of Healdsburg is Seghesio Family Vineyards — Bonded Winery #56, one of the oldest wineries in the Sonoma County. Their extensive gardens are a relaxing, calming place with fountains, benches, mature shade trees — including an old “cork” tree — two bocce ball courts, a demonstration vineyard and a pizza oven for events and cooking class use.
Inside the Mediterranean-style tasting center there are gift items and wine accessories for sale, and the mood is casual and friendly. Black & white photographs adorn the walls and a fireplace warms the room. There are two private VIP tasting rooms, where wine and food pairing classes are offered Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays starting at 10am. (Call for reservations.)
Their great grandfather, Edoardo Seghesio, began the family buisness in 1895 with his wife, Angela. For the past century, the winery has grown, and so has the Seghesio family. Eight family members are involved in the day to day operations of the vineyards and winery. These members, representing the third, fourth, and fifth generations, are all united in a common goal, to create great wines from the soils our forefathers left us.
Four generations later, they are still at it producing their flagship Zinfandel wines, as well as Pinot Noir, Pinot Grigio, Barbera, Sangiovese and some red blends. They also produce some less-common Italian varietals such as Aglianico and Arneis, the “little rascal” white wine from their Russian River vineyards.
The family owns six Sonoma County vineyards located in Dry Creek Valley, Russian River Valley and Alexander Valley.↑ Less
