Carol Shelton has been Mastering the Zen of Zin since 1978. Focusing mostly on her favorite varietal, Carol is a guru of single vineyard Zinfandel. California has been the home world class Zin for over a century, making it the benchmark varietal of American wine culture. Carol & Mitch Mackenzie, her husband and business partner, have sought out exceptional vineyards throughout California including Dry Creek Valley, Rockpile, Russian River Valley, Mendocino, and the Cucamonga Valley of Southern California. Many of her vineyard sources are organically grown and decades old. She develops close partnerships with each grower to ensure her wines maintain and express the unique terroir of the vineyard.
The setting for Carol Shelton Wines may not be what wine tasters envision when planning a visit to wine country. But Zin lovers stepping into our homey, unpretentious tasting room will find a dream come true.
After tasting through a half-dozen luscious award-winning, single-vineyard designate Zinfandels, including a magical Late Harvest, and a few more red wines, our locale—an industrial section of Santa Rosa—becomes immaterial.
We are Open Daily from 11 – 4.
