We specially selected a half-case of our dry-farmed Zinfandels to help you get a taste of what dry-farming is all about! Each vintage offers different essences of the Zinfandel grape varietal. From the initial full, fruit-forward taste to its peppery-chocolate finish, savor the difference in each year.
Our grapes are grown in the traditional head-pruned, dry farmed method to bring you bold, complex wines that give you the full essence of each varietal. To order wines that are currently available, please use our Order Form. After you complete it, email or mail it to us. Also, stop by and taste our wines at any of our upcoming Events and at the Santa Cruz Area Farmers Markets. Coming soon: our online store!
Among our vineyard’s five acres of organic, dry-farmed grapes are interspersed rows of olive trees, approximately 125 trees. Growing and harvesting in ways that respect and protect the natural surroundings, we seek to carry on the tradition of producing high quality wines and olive oil as was done in vineyards and olive groves centuries ago. We produce robust, cold pressed, organic, extra virgin olive oil from our organically grown and dry-farmed Italian olive varietals. Our hand harvested olives are a blend of six Italian varietals: Leccino, Maurino, Coratina, Frantoio, Itrana, Pendolino.

Benito Dusi grew up on the vineyard that he farms today just south of Paso Robles, California. He carefully tends Zinfandel vines grown in the traditional dry-farmed, head-pruned style that he learned from his father. We met Ben when we began planting our vineyard in 1997. He became our mentor, teaching us these traditional techniques to use at Condor’s Hope. We are very pleased to be one of the few small producers of wine from Benito Dusi’s old vine Zinfandel. Grown in Paso Robles and kept in American Oak barrels for over 20 months. Winemaker: J.P. Pawloski of River Run Vintners.
