Earthquake wine is from the Lodi Appellation in California. It is produced by the Turley Wine Cellars winery, and is best known for their Earthquake Zinfandel. The grapes used to make this bold and intense red wine come from a vineyard planted in 1906, which was around the same time as San Francisco's great earthquake of that year. The vineyard was an old-vine vineyard, meaning that the vines were over 50 years old at the time of harvesting. This gives Earthquake Zinfandel its powerful concentration and big, daring flavors.
