Purchased in 2016, Saitone Estate Vineyard, in the heart of the Russian River Valley, is one of the oldest old-vine vineyards remaining in the Olivet-Piner region, and was originally part of the Nicholas Carriger Estate.
Saitone was established in 1895 by Antonio Saitone, and is primarily planted to Zinfandel, but also has small blocks of Carignane, Alicante Bouschet, and Chasselas Dore’, and is interplanted with Muscadelle, French Columbard, Muscat, Petit Bouschet, Criolla Mediana and Grand Noir.
