About Cobble Creek I

The Cobble Creek Vineyard, surrounding the Tasting Room and home site of owners Niels and Bimmer Udsen is 100% organically grown certified by CCOF. The original vineyard surrounding the tasting room was planted circa 1970 and the vineyard surrounding the home site was established in 1991. Recently, however, a majority of the vineyard surrounding the Tasting Room site has been replanted due to declining production in the old vines. The Cobble Creek vineyard is made up of Zinfandel and Primitivo grapes and has long been one of our flagship vineyards. The vineyard is own-rooted (no root stock utilized) and head trained from wood which traces back to the history of Paso Robles Zinfandel. The soil at the home location is very shallow and top soil is quite high in limestone, broken sedimentary rock and water transported gravels. The Tasting Room location has a deeper, richer soil and is high in limestone and gravel. This vineyard was a big contributor to Castoro Zinfandel even before the property was purchased in 1994.
