The name of the PeaceLand Vineyard comes from the translation of its owners’ German last name—Friedland.  The unique “tall-head” trained vines are planted in a wild fantasia of settings—steep hillsides, amidst groves of bay and live-oak, most with stunning vistas of the city of Santa Rosa far below.  It was the three separate clones Zinfandel that drew us to try them out…and we are hooked!
