Located in Cienega Valley, DeRose Vineyards was founded on land rich in winemaking history. Since 1854, when French immigrant Theophile Vaché began hauling his wine to market in San Juan Bautista, the property has survived several changes in ownership, a few major earthquakes and the age of prohibition. Prized by generations of vintners for its temperate climate and great soil, it is an ideal location for growing wine grapes.
DeRose Vineyards produces award-winning zinfandel, negrette, cabernet franc and viognier. Every bottle shows depth, intensity and true varietal character. Drinkable upon release or with proper cellaring, they possess the necessary fruit and structure for enjoyment at any level of interest.
