Product details

On a fall day in 1976, as ravens taunted from tree branches above, Joel Peterson worked doggedly to pick four tons of grapes before a looming thunderstorm hit. The fruit he crushed that night was used for one of two single-vineyard Sonoma County Zins – the first wines to bear Ravenswood's signature ring of ravens.

Later, at a prestigious San Francisco tasting, these same wines received critical attention when they won first and second in highly regarded tasting. Utilizing this critical thumbs-up, Joel was able to gather a few wine-loving investors to help get his winery off the ground.

Over the next decade, the Ravenswood flock grew as Joel forged strong bonds with a cadre of grape growers who to this day sell us grapes for almost everything we make, including Ravenswood's prodigious portfolio of Single Vineyard Designate and county series wines. An homage to the fateful 1976 harvest where an ominous storm loomed and ravens circled above.
