One of Lodi's most coveted Zinfandels over the past dozen years has come from a 10-acre vineyard owned and meticulously farmed by Craig Rous. Rous Vineyard is located in the heart of the east side of Lodi's Mokelumne River AVA — a level pocket of some 30 feet of porous sandy loam soil, built up by millenniums of overflow from this major waterway, pushing down from the Sierra Nevadas.

Rous himself holds down a day job, as director of operations at the Kautz family's giant production Bear Creek Winery. This is also one of the reasons why Rous Vineyard is so special, said Tim Holdener, the winemaker/ owner of Macchia Wines.
