the Penny Farthing bicycle.
Forty years and still going strong, but don't take it for granted any longer. Pleasant grounds, nautical theme, dry Chenin Blanc and famed Fume Blanc. Among other firsts, DCV was first to use "old vine" on a Zinfandel label.
Grape growers straight out of the 19th century only opened this winery in the first decade of the 21st. The Rockpile Zinfandel is much sought-after.
