The Zabala Vineyard is located in Arroyo Seco AVA. This vineyard was previously river bed, and has a very rocky and porous soil, which makes it great for growing grapes. Good soil, along along with the warmer climate of Arroyo Seco, make this an ideal location for thin skinned red grapes and aromatic whites. Zabala Vineyard grows Riesling, Pinot Noir, and Syrah, and De Tierra began producing wine with these grapes in 2015. Zabala Vineyards is green and Organic Certified by Protected Harvest of Lodi, as well as SIP (Sustainability in Practice) Certified.
