Zmarzly, owners of Albertina Wine Cellars and Zmarzly Family
Vineyards, hope that you enjoy browsing through this website.
Information on the vineyard, winery and the wine being produced
is presented so that you may become more familiar with the
of our wines are estate bottled, with hand-picked grapes from
our own mountain vineyard. The thin soils of our mountain
vineyard force the vines to continuously struggle, producing
smaller berries with more intense flavors and color. The low
yields of 3 tons per acre result in concentrated fruit flavors.
The Zmarzly owns and operates the mountain vineyard, employing
Greg Graziano and Penny Gadd Coster as winemakers.

Located in beautiful Hopland in the heart of Mendocino County
Hopland is in Southern Mendocino County, about 15 miles north
of the Sonoma-Mendocino County line. It is an agricultural
area with wine grapes the main crop. The town has a number
of antique shops, restaurants, tasting rooms and one historic
hotel. Hopland is about a 45 minute drive from Santa Rosa,
CA on Highway 101, making it ideal for weekend getaways.
The Zmarzly Family Vineyards are in the hills 4 miles west
of the town of Hopland, on a small county road. The high elevation
(1250 to 1600 feet) offers a chance to see 25 mile views of
the hills, valleys and nearby mountain ranges. The views are
thrilling, especially the one from the knoll, a tree-studded
hill within the vineyard.
Mendocino County is rural, sparsely populated, with spectacular
views and very little traffic. Most of the wineries in Mendocino
County are located along one of two corridors. Route 128 goes
through Yorkville and Anderson Valley on its way to the Pacific
Coast. Highway 101 traces north-to-south, with many wineries
located from Hopland to Redwood Valley, just north of Ukiah.
