The Del Barba Family has been farming vineyards in and around Oakley since the early 1900s. Vineyards are farmed in pure Delhi sand with little intervention and even less water. The old Del Barba Ranch on Rose Avenue in Oakley, with its centennial center block of Carignane, Mataro (otherwise known as Mourvèdre), and Zinfandel, is surrounded by a block of ‘juvenile’ 30-year-old Zinfandel, which is where the Erggelet brothers pick their Carignane and Zinfandel.
