A Mazzoni Island of the Mind ~or~ First Friday at Monte Bello!


It’s May 3rd, and it’s First Friday at Monte Bello!


For our May edition of this very special monthly event, we will be celebrating the release of the new 2009 Mazzoni Home Ranch Zinfandel! The 2009 is one of the most notably zinfandel-forward Mazzoni offerings in recent years, and while it shows all the compact rusticity and culinarily companionable spice and acidity we’ve come to expect from this old-vine vineyard, it does so in a comparatively lusher, more fruit-driven fashion, and as such, is already showing beautifully with just two years in the bottle.


And dig this!

We’ll be pouring the 2009 in a two-vintage vertical with its predecessor, the 2008 Mazzoni!


This is the last chance we’ll have the ’08 on hand as a current release, making this an especially rarefied tasting opportunity.

Making today, a good day to be a member.

So remember, if you’re a member, remember:

First Friday!

  1. Christopher, the Italian Swiss Colony cooperative is discussed in great detail in Simone Cinotto’s book, “Soft Soil, Black Grapes.” It’s a fascinating story!
