Tasting & Tour By APPOINTMENT ONLY
The Zmarzlys own and operate the mountain vineyard.
All of our wines are estate bottled, with hand-picked grapes from our own mountain vineyard. The thin soils of our mountain vineyard force the vines to continuously struggle, producing smaller berries with more intense flavors and color. The low yields of 3 tons per acre result in concentrated fruit flavors. The Zmarzly owns and operates the mountain vineyard, employing Greg Graziano and Penny Gadd Coster as winemakers.
Albertina Wine Cellars does not have a tasting room but offers wine tasting in the vineyard to guests, by appointment. The oak-studded knoll in the middle of the vineyard offers 25 miles views of the mountains and valley below. It is a terrific place to sit back and taste the wine.
