The Seven Deadly Zins—Sinful indeed! This wickedly delicious zin is temptation at first sip. And that's not just their pride talking . . . blame it on the Catholic school upbringing ofbrothers Michael and David or their lust for hedonistically seductive wines.
The Phillips family has been farming since Andrew Harshner and his wife Lucille homesteaded 160 acres near the town of Lodi, following the Civil War in the 1860s. Originally devoted to vegetables, the Phillips' farm evolved to include many different fruits, including 15 different wine varietals that were shipped throughout the country during Prohibition with instructions on "how not to have the grapes turn into wine." These days, Michael and David Phillips represent the fifth generation of growers in Lodi with their 650 acres of premium wine grapes. In the end, Seven vineyards were chosen for their superiority.
