The trouble with writing about De Loach is not where do you start, but where do you stop! In 1970, Cecil De Loach, a local fireman, and his wife, Christine, purchased 24 acres of old-vines Zinfandel for $60,000. It's scary to think of what it would be worth today-maybe a number with nine zeros after it.
For a while they were content to sell their grapes to local wineries who were eager to get their hands on them. But, after five years of seeing of others' wines, crafted with their grapes, win many accolades, the De Loachs decided to make their own.
All the while, De Loach became almost a household name. Their wines were seen and sold everywhere, simply because they were all fantastic. When they retired in 2003, they sold the winery to the powerhouse Boisset family who has not skipped a beat in the quality. Crafted with grapes from local vineyards in the valley, our selection is a beauty with power and glory for the ages. Try it with cilantro-buttered poached salmon or shrimp creole.
