The Zaninovich family has deep farming roots, spanning nearly a century. In the early 1970s, we were captivated by the raw beauty and exceptional potential of the undiscovered Arroyo Seco wine region in Monterey County. Today this area has emerged as one of California’s most celebrated wine-growing regions, and among the most breathtaking.




We are inspired by the legacy of John Muir, who sought to preserve the wilderness for future generations. With four generations of California farming in harmony with nature, we have great respect for this land we call home. Like John Muir, we take a long-term perspective. We believe in nurturing the land so that it may bear fruit for generations to come.


The Arroyo Seco is located southeast of the Monterey Bay in the valley adjacent to the Arroyo Seco Creek, we’re lucky to enjoy a unique combination of growing conditions and soils which create grapes with character and flavor. We get a richness and quality of grapes that you don’t find anywhere else.


Seeing potential early on, we established vineyards in different growing areas of the Arroyo Seco AVA, starting in 1971 with Suter, our home ranch, Zanetta Ranch in 1988 and Wiley Ranch in 1998. Each vineyard, down to individual vineyard blocks, possess distinctive microclimate and soils.

Our naturally formed granite cobblestones, known locally as“Greenfield Potatoes”, are part of what make our vines dig deep for water and nutrients, for more flavorful grapes.
