7th generation farmers, the Mauritson family have been working these vineyards since 1868, finally releasing their own wines in 1998. The winery is now under the stewardship of former University of Oregon football player, Clay Mauritson, who grew up working the vineyards with his father before cutting his teeth at Kenwood Vineyards. Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon specialists, Mauritson is located at the corner of Dry Creek Valley and Lytton Springs Road, hallowed ground for Zinfandel in particular. The vast majority of the Mauritson grapes are sold to premium producers throughout Sonoma County, though they keep the very best for themselves. From Robert Parker…”This is Zinfandel at its best, and I wonder why I have not seen enough of the Mauritson wines in the past. There is no question that these Zinfandels should be included with some of the top producers of Sonoma.”
