Due Vigne di Famiglia

The concept of Due Vigne di Famiglia began to evolve over 30 years ago when Ken Musso became fascinated that his father and grandfather made a substantial amount of wine in the basement of a landmark mortuary in San Francisco. Winemaking became even more intriguing when Ken’s cousin’s discovered a few bottles of his grandfathers last vintage in their basement, the 1937 zinfandel. It was then that Ken knew it was his destiny to carry on the family tradition.
In 1973 Ken Musso began a career in firefighting that would span three decades and put any thought of commercial winemaking aside until Due Vigne came to fruition in 2004. But during those years the passion remained. Even as a relatively new firefighter in 1975 Ken brought his first load of zinfandel home from Sonoma in the trunk of his dad’s car and fermented them in the garage. The wine was a great success among family and friends and Ken decided he would look for more grapes, hopefully those that he could farm himself.
Ken would continue to make wines for family and friends consecutively for thirty vintages while honing his skills as a winemaker through classes and seminars at UC Davis and other educational venues. In 1995 Ken and his wife Ann would purchase a five-acre parcel of land in Garden Valley, California to finally plant their Gold Medal Nebbiolo, Dolcetto and Barbera.
