Broken Leg Vineyard


Anderson Valley - Mendocino County


Anderson valley isn't known for Zinfandels as it is one of the coolest grape growing regions in the state. However on the ridgetops the vineyards are able to eke out enough heat to fully ripen some of the varietals that wouldn't make it at the lower elevations. With almost unreal 60 degree slopes in a southern exposure, Broken Leg Vineyards located 12 miles west of Philo and was planted in the early 90s. The low-yielding, painful to farm, vines are owned and personally tended to by the driving force behind most of Anderson Valleys big name/small production vineyards, Steve Williams.


The long growing season allows the vineyard to develop good acidity with bright fruit flavors. The grapes have classic Zinfandel flavors of black cherry and blackberry with a hint of white pepper spice. The vines are over 10 years old, and the results are fabulous now. Like all good Zinfandel vineyards, it will continue to grow in complexity and depth as it matures over the years.


Fruit from Broken Leg vineyards is shared with other prominent wineries including Claudia Springs and Copain Wines, who received a 95 point rating from Robert Parker Wine Advocate. Copain also does a great job with fruit from Justin Smith of Saxum Vineyards.
