Old Vine Zinfandel
Fred Cline started Cline Cellars in 1982 in Oakley, California, making his first vintages from original plantings of Mourvedre, Zinfandel, and Carignane, some of which dated back to the 1880s.
The Rhone Rangers
In 1989, Fred purchased a 350-acre horse farm in Carneros and moved the winery to Sonoma County. As one of the original Rhone Rangers, he began planting varietals that included several vineyards dedicated to Syrah, Viognier, Marsanne, and Roussanne. Since those first plantings, Fred and his wife Nancy have continued to plant vineyards throughout Sonoma County and expanding its tasting menu to include more classic varieties like Pinot Noir, Merlot, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Carignane, Cashmere, Gewürztraminer, Grenache, late harvest, Mourvèdre, Petite Sirah, Pinot Gris, Riesling, Rosé, Roussanne, Syrah, Viognier, and Zinfandel.
