*******************************************************************
Located in the heart of Dry Creek Valley (Sonoma County, California), ESTATE 1856 WINES specializes in small, hand crafted lots of Cabernet, Merlot, Malbec, and Petit Verdot. From harvest through blending and bottling, our goal is to create rich, fruit forward, and harmonious blends that delight the palate. Brian Schmidt and his wife Janice Schmidt, our winemaker, have joined Rob & Rachel Schmidt to create these exceptional wines.

******************************************************************
Our estate vineyard, TZABACO RANCHO VINEYARDS, is located in the heart of the Dry Creek Valley in Sonoma County and has been continuously farmed by family members since 1856. Brian and Janice Schmidt share their vision of proudly producing premium wine grapes in beautiful Dry Creek Valley using sustainable winegrowing practices that will allow our family to continue farming for generations. The vineyard is planted to multiple white and red varietal winegrape clones that make wonderful, award winning single varietal or meritage white and red wines.
