About Del Barba

The vineyards have been farmed by the Del Barba Family since the early 1900s. All vines are head pruned and dry farmed/minimally irrigated and planted on Oakley Sand. Many parts of the vineyard are old plantings registered by the California Historic Vineyard Society as ancient vines with other parts replanted in the 60s and 70s. The Family follows a very traditional and non-intensive Farming principle in the vineyard that respects lower yields and pushes for structured and complex taste. Many esteemed wineries and winemakers have made world class Zinfandel of these grapes over the past decades and continue doing so today.
