Dr. Douglas Ousterhout left San Francisco and decided it was time to invest in a quiet wine country retreat. He discovered the ideal property in Healdsburg in the southern part of Alexander Valley with a beautiful Tuscan-style home and nearly five acres of planted vines.
Under the guidance of winemaker Micah Wirth and Director of Operations Jack Steffen, Ousterhout Wine produces award-winning Zinfandel from their estate property, Nance’s Vineyard. The 2011 Nance’s Vineyard Zinfandel received 95 points from Wine & Spirits Magazine and was featured as one of the best Zinfandels of the year.
Additional Ousterhout Wines include Pinot Noir Rosé from Russian River Valley, Sauvignon Blanc from Alexander Valley, and Zinfandel from Dry Creek Valley.
The prominent wines they produce are Rosé, Sauvignon Blanc/Fume Blanc, and Zinfandel.
