I have identified a promising lead on zinfandel grapes from Dry Creek Valley in Sonoma. Professionally farmed and usually sold to an established winery. The owner has been nice and responsive, but seeing as how I'm only looking for 400lbs, I'm probably more of an annoyance than a real business opportunity! Looking to find a few others who would like to join on an order to make it worthwhile.

In terms of pricing, they usually sell at $3800/ton but I could be a little less than that this year. We'd need to coordinate on picking and pickup timing. I'm located in the East Bay and probably won't need to rent a trailer but that's a maybe depending on the volumes.

Please let me know if you're interested in getting on this train. Thanks.

You can find some really old vine Zinfandel on the central coast for a better deal that’s way over priced for even the best Zinfandel in my opinion.
 
@Nebbiolo020 I bought some Chardonnay from Arroyo Seco and recall Zin being in the area. Do you have a vineyard you could recommend?
Umm I do know a couple good vineyards for Zinfandel but they would be in Paso Robles or Northern California, I have one that I take half the fruit from yearly so you could potentially get the other half vineyard is large so would be at least 1.5 tons minimum extra if you wanted it.
