Jacktone Ranch
Jacktone Ranch
Made from California’s signature grape, Zinfandel and a very good and potent version of it
USA, California, Jacktone Ranch, San Joaquin Valley, Zinfandel Reserve, 2012

Handled by Kingsland, Wines and Spirits UK, originating from the San Joaquin Valley, central California, one of the sunniest wine regions in the world. With expensive irrigation, dry-farming is what many of the wine growers are after. The current Tone generation carries on the tradition on the Ranch.

The ranch is based in Stockton, a historic Californian farm, dating back to 1849, when the Jack Tone family settled, ‘oldest family-owned horse ranch in the State of California’. Agricultural farming started the business, including vines and followed with award winning and very successful (Arabian) horse breeding.
