Sylvester and Catarina Dusi purchased this homestead in 1924, when the vines were one year old. Their son Benito still lives on the ranch. He was able to keep his vines during the 1950’s and 60’s (when zin prices were very poor) by selling wine made from the grapes (he gave that up by the end of the 60?s) and by selling grapes to home winemakers (which he still does today). This zinfandel selection is preserved as a Heritage Zinfandel Clone.
