Sonoma Power Couple!


Mazzocco Sonoma is a labor of love for Ken and Diane Wilson. When the opportunity arose for them to take over this undulating vineyard and winery sitting on a saddle between Dry Creek and Alexander Valley, there was no turning back.

Once again Ken's passion for vineyards and growing grapes brought him to this place. It was Ken's wisdom and vision that created the diversity of vineyard sources over the years and this was another piece of property not to be missed. The Lytton Springs vineyards (made famous by Paul Draper at Ridge Winery) provide premium quality fruit that allowed for the growth of single-vineyard Zinfandels to be created.


Winemaker Antoine Favero has a colorful personal history. He was born in the Champagne region of France (maybe that's why Karen likes these wines so much?!), but at an early age moved with his family to a Peruvian coastal fishing village in South America. When Antoine was nine years old, he and his family relocated to Northern California's wine country.

While attending the University of California at Davis, Antoine discovered enology and quickly developed a passion for the art and science of creating exceptional wines. He further honed his winemaking skills by working at several premier wineries, specializing in Bordeaux and Rhone varietals and Zinfandel. Over the last five years Antoine has made Mazzocco literally the talk of the town for his flavorful and unique Zinfandels.

I'm sure your've heard!


In my 29 years of business I've never seen a product spawning so much excitement and attention. It seems like every other phone call we've gotten the last three weeks is "do you guys have any Not Your Father's Root Beer?" Just for the record yes we do, but that is not the purpose of my email.

I'm sure every retailer in Delaware and every employee at Standard Distributing Company from driver to sales rep to management to order department will agree when I say that this product is a big freakin' headache! We get it in and it's gone before you know it... and then the phone starts ringing.

And it keeps ringing.

If you haven't had it, it is definitely worth seeking... that is if you're a root beer fan. I'd say it's a pretty fantastic root beer, but actually a terrible tasting beer if that's what you're expecting.

A few weeks ago I hosted a Root Beer Float tasting here at FranksWine on North Union Street... and you loved it!

Tomorrow from 4:30pm - 7:30pm we'll be hosting a "Fuck Your Daddy's Root Beer" tasting. This brilliant cocktail was concocted by FranksWine's very own Pat Travis, C.S.

It's a blend of Dancing Pines Chai Liqueur and A&W Root Beer... and it'll make you happier than a bottle of Not Your Father's Root Beer.

Pat guarantees it!

We hope you stop in for a taste. Of course it's free, we're cool like that.
