I was so disappointed when I picked up my latest wine order. One, I was disappointed with the bill. I have got to stop drinking the good stuff. And two, I learned that Seghesio winery has been sold to a conglomerate. :cry2:

Over the years, I have bought many cases of the Seghesio Sonoma Zinfandel. It is a wonderful wine and when I can get it on sale for $19, I buy a case. We went to a Seghesio wine tasting couple weeks back where we tried a few others in their family of wines, and bought a second mixed case of wine.

Part of their news article reads:
US-based Crimson Wine Group, a producer of luxury domestic wine, has acquiried Seghesio Family Vineyards, a produer of estate-grown Zinfandel wines in California.

The acquisition will allow Seghesio Family Vineyards to join the portfolio of luxury domestic brands including Archery Summit, Chamisal Vineyards and Pine Ridge Vineyards.

Sorry to hear this. My brother and sis in law live in Healdsburg and we have always liked Seghesio's wines.

That's kind of funny to me because I've never considered Pine Ridge as luxury domestic brands. I have bought its white wines in the $10-12 range.
