Saint Helena, CA (PressExposure) March 09, 2009 -- Showcased in an elegant new package, Vineyard 1869 will be released March 24. Handcrafted by one of Amador Countyâs renowned winemakers, Scott Harvey, this wine exudes the elegance of a 138 year old zinfandel vineyard. The label designer, Connie Schlelein used gold foil to reflect the vineyardâs rich history; the vineyards are located in the California Gold Country.
âI wanted this bottle of wine to tell the story of where itâs from both inside and outâ said Scott Harvey, winemaker and former owner of Vineyard 1869. âTasting the wine is tasting history through all the layers of soil the roots travel through--up to 25 feet. The name is for the year the deed was documented.â These vines have survived both the serious pest phylloxera in the 1890s and the era of Prohibition. Schlelein added, âI designed the package to convey that the person drinking it has hit the Mother Lode â a historic Zinfandel made by a master winemaker.
The vineyard is well-known among Zinfandel aficionados. Also known as Grandpere Vineyard, OGP, and Harvey Vineyard, it has been embroiled in a trademark dispute that is now settled. For additional information contact: Jana Harvey 415-264-5641 or firstname.lastname@example.org .
