Little Vineyards Family Winery

Little Vineyards Family Winery A LITTLE dream…becomes reality for Joan and Rich Little who aspired to live in Sonoma Valley, raise a family, grow grapes and one day produce premium red wines. In 1996, they purchased a 25 acre property from the Hanford Family in Glen Ellen. Since that time, they have raised four children, restored the property’s century old farmhouse, planted 17 acres of grapes and Rich even found time to make a little music with his band, American Standard. Eventually, Joan and Rich decided to blend their winegrowing expertise with the winemaking expertise of Joan’s brother, Ted Coleman. In the beginning, they experimented with small lots of wine which received great praise from their family and friends. In 2002, Joan and Rich began their efforts to establish Little Vineyards as a small bonded winery producing no more than 2500 cases a year. They were approved to crush their first vintage and Ted crafted two award winning wines from their estate grown fruit…2002 Zinfandel and 2002 Resonance, a Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon blend.

The 2003 Zinfandel is an approachable, medium to full bodied wine. The juicy, intense fruit of wild berry and raspberry balanced with firm acidity and oak create a fine gravely finish.
