Story

Day is the new Zinfandel project of Ehren Jordan, the mastermind behind such amazing labels as Turley, Neyers, and Failla.  When he purchased a St. Helena property back in 2004, he knew he wanted to plant grapes on the hillside that at the time contained an apple orchard.  After a few years of pondering, he decided that the locale was ideal for one of his early loves in the vine world - Zinfandel.  Four acres are currently planted, with the original vines hitting the dirt in 2011.

Zinfandel is, for Ehren, a return to his roots, having been the wines that established his reputation as a talented vigneron. Similar to the approach at Failla, most of the Day Zinfandel wines are sourced from Sonoma County; an area largely unexplored during Ehren's tenure at Turley.

Great sites, old vines, and gentle winemaking remain the production philosophy for Day.  Ehren is more than thrilled to work with some of California's finest Zinfandel vineyards; we hope you are as pleased with the wines as we are.

A student of Art History, Ehren has long nurtured a love of modern innovation's reflection of past brilliance.  This has taken shape in his devotion to organic farming, use of native yeasts, and willingness to experiment with concrete eggs and kiln-fired, terra cotta amphora to ferment his wines.  For Day, the artisan approach continues with one of the oldest continually produced (and oft-maligned) grape varietals in the American wine world: Zinfandel.

Inspired by the climate and geology of Sonoma County and the statement Zinfandel has made on the region since the 1860s, Ehren has set his sights on vineyards of pedigree for the backbone of the Day lineup.  Much like Pinot Noir and Gamay (both of which are stacked high in Ehren's cellar), Zinfandel is a varietal that offers clear transparency of terroir; true expression without need for undue fussing at the winery.

For Ehren, the Farm and its Farmer is where the story truly begins.  Whether it's Hector Garcia who has been farming the El Diablo vineyard for over 40 years, or the harmonious relationship Ulysses Valdez has with every vineyard he touches, each site's connection to talented farmers is paramount in the creation of quality grapes.

Day is proud to offer a clear vision of how important the relationship between location, varietal, and the painstaking labor of man is to that time-honored sentiment that great wine is indeed made in the vineyard.
