Our historyZinAlley is a small family-owned and operated winery nestled in the heart of the Central coast's Famous Templeton Gap and was once part of the old Pesenti Estate.
Frank Nerelli and his wife Connie bought the property from his uncle, Victor Pesenti, in the early 1970's. They planted dry farmed, head pruned vines, grown in old world tradition with the finesse of modern technology to produce a soft and complex Zinfandel. Following in the foot steps of his father Aldo Nerelli, and grandfather Frank Pesenti, Frank is sharing in the heritage of award winning Zinfandels. With a sense of tradition, a passion for the grape, and a style all his own Frank is producing no more than 500 cases a year of some of the best Zinfandels, California has to offer.
