Downing Family Vineyards
Established in 1998, Downing Family Vineyards produces small case lots of ultra-premium Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz and Petite Sirah. The labels represent things about which John and Tracy Downing are passionate—flying, fly fishing, sailing and cycling. Because of a shared fervor for flying, they decided to call their Zinfandel “Fly By Night.” The airplane on the label depicts a Beechcraft Staggerwing, an innovative marvel of style and grace. The Cabernet Sauvignon is packaged in an award-winning bottle encircled by a delicate line with a barbless fly at its end.
