About This Vineyard
The Coturri Estate Vineyard is situated above the tiny hamlet of Glen Ellen in the region known as the Valley of the Moon. Red Coturri and his sons Phil and Tony first planted 2-acres of vines in 1967, and another 5-acres in 1975. The Estate Vineyard is a second generation planting – the first was pre-prohibition before the 1920’s.
The organic vineyard is comprised of primarily of Martini Monte Rosso Zinfandel clones on phylloxera resistant St. George rootstock, with approximately a half acre of Chardonnay. The Coturri Estate Vineyard is dry farmed, and head pruned in the traditional Italian goblet style.
