Z-52 Background

Z-52’s minimalist approach to winemaking embraces the notion that terroir and its influence on grape character is essential to producing outstanding Zinfandel. The origin of this project is Agnes’ Vineyard in Lodi, planted by Agnes Schroeder and her husband shortly after World War 2; the Schroeder’s were part of an immigrant community settling in Lodi and working the soil as they had done in Germany. It was the 52 rows of Agnes’ Vineyard that inspired the brand name, Z-52. Not to mention 52 weeks in a vintage, and 52 cards in the deck that Z-52 isn’t playing with.
