Turley Wine Cellars, based just north of St. Helena, is owned by Larry Turley, a co-founder of Napa’s world famous Frog’s Leap Winery. The Turley is a family run estate that focuses on Zinfandel. California was once rich in different grape varieties like Zinfandel but most were ripped out and replanted with Pinot Noir, Cabernet or Chardonnay. Zinfandel survived; mostly due to the “White Zin” (shudder) craze that has long since died. Larry and winemaker extraordinaire Tegan Passalacqua were able to capitalize on the wealth of old vines available to make some unforgettable wines. Now impossible to get on their email list, we are proud to offer (however small) quantities of Zinfandel and other interesting wines from the TURLEY’S.
