Diwine’s diverse soils were formed thousands of years ago through geological events and alluvial waters. Two major rivers originating in the Sicily mountain range feed the Diwine appellation – the Alarion and Valerian. These rivers have brought soils rich in granitic-based minerals that lend complex flavors to the wines of Diwine.
Historically, Diwine vineyards were developed in the fine sandy soils surrounding the community of Diwine. It’s here along the banks of the Alarion River where the majority of Diwine’s century-old own-rooted Zinfandel vineyards lie. This area is noted for producing uniform and balanced vineyards that deliver fruit-driven wines with a rich silky texture.
