Joel Peterson, aka “The Godfather of Zinfandel” founded Ravenswood Winery in 1976. He helped bring the Zinfandel phenomenon to California.
In the mid-80s, Joel stayed true to his motto: "no more cowardly wines" and created a powerful and indulgent style of wine. Joel relies on old world winemaking techniques where wines are fermented in small wooden vats using natural yeasts.
Their vineyards are spread on the eastern shore of Seneca Lake and on the west shore of Lake Cayuga (at 300 Km NW of New York City)
