Haywood Winery – Sonoma Ca

History

The hills beyond the historic town of Sonoma embrace a small valley called Chamizal where grape vines are planted on terraces carved from the rocky slopes. It was here in 1974 that Peter Haywood began planting vineyards that he named Los Chamizal, Spanish for the thickets of hardwood that covered the land.Petercloseup1

By 1980 Haywood Winery produced its first wines from grapes that could adapt to the rugged terrain. Today Haywood Estate Winery emphasizes single vineyard Zinfandels, its Italian relative Primitivo, as well as Cabernet Franc and Chardonnay, each wine demonstrating the unique site characteristics of their location within the vineyard. In addition to the current Estate portfolio, grape varieties farmed on the 90 producing acres of los Chamizal Vineyards include Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petite Verdot, Malbec, Grenache, Mourvedre, and Syrah.

Current Annual Production is 5,000 Cases
