Zinfandel enthusiasts covet Old Vine, Old Clone Zinfandels from Lodi, where Zinfandel was first planted in the 1850’s. Today Lodi is recognized as the capital for California’s signature varietal, and Regio, the Italian word for royalty, shows the flavor profile that makes Zinfandel a truly unique varietal. This release is filled with spicy flavors of dark fruit and quiet vanilla oak accents.

Other Vintage Dated Lodi Releases:
Dry Rose



Thousand Islands Winery is located in Jefferson County, New York.  

The winery is located on a farm that was built in 1836.  The farm was later owned and operated by Captain Massey and his wife Ida in the 1930′s.  Captain Massey was a famous Riverboat Captain. He owned a huge Great Lake Vessel that he eventually sold to the Department of Defense for the war effort during World War II.

Steve and Erika Conaway purchased the Farm in December 2002.  Upon Steve’s retirement from the military, they decided to create a winery in Alexandria Bay, NY.  This was inspired by the years that Steve has spent in Germany with the US Army.  There, he fell in love with wine and decided to bring a taste of Germany to upstate New York.

The winery opened its doors to the public in July of 2003 hand-bottling 1300 gallons of wine during its first year.  The winery has grown much in the years that have passed and currently bottle over 30,000 gallons of wine.

We invite you to taste our hand crafted wines for yourself and Wine Down in the Islands!

Mad Housewife Philosophy: Above all else, wine should be fun, relaxing, and something you can afford to look forward to at the end of each and every day. This is your time. Time to enjoy a moment to yourself. A moment without the madness.

Wine should never intimidate, make you think too hard, or create a new line
item in your budget.
