Zinke Wine Co. specializes in handcrafted, single vineyard, Rhône varietals sourced from some of the best vineyards in California. Winemaker and Owner, Michael Zinke, explains it best, "My passion for wine stems from the vine itself, the earth it comes from, and the fruit it produces. I’m lucky to be able to work with the Grand Crus of California’s Central Coast, all within a stone’s throw of my home in Santa Ynez. I pick at optimal ripeness and hand sort the fruit. Small lot, native yeast and whole cluster fermentations, co-ferments, and finding the proper balance of oak and time are part of the formula. The other part? Passion, love, authenticity, and the pursuit of the impossible—perfection."
