Reason #2: Old Vine Zinfandels.

These ancient vineyards should be revered as American treasures. The story goes that they were planted back in 1888 and some of them are still on their own roots. You heard me right: Over 130 year-old vines! Of course, the yields are very low. Incredibly expensive to maintain? Sure! But the high quality of the fruit they produce totally justifies their existence (that is, only for those of you who don’t care about what they mean to our heritage as a wine producing country).

If you haven’t tried any OVZs (Old Vine Zinfandels) lately, you are surely missing something special.
