Welcome to our website

The Zmarzlys own and operate the mountain vineyard. Fred and Alberta Zmarzly, owners of Albertina Wine Cellars and Zmarzly Family Vineyards, hope that you enjoy browsing through this website. Information on the vineyard, winery and the wine being produced is presented so that you may become more familiar with the wines.

All of our wines are estate bottled, with hand-picked grapes from our own mountain vineyard. The thin soils of our mountain vineyard force the vines to continuously struggle, producing smaller berries with more intense flavors and color. The low yields of 3 tons per acre result in concentrated fruit flavors. The Zmarzly owns and operates the mountain vineyard, employing Greg Graziano and Penny Gadd Coster as winemakers.



Albertina Wines are now being sold on

Personal Guarantee from the owner

I offer you a money-back guarantee. If you buy a bottle of our Cabernet Sauvignon for tasting, and don't agree that it is delicious, fruity with soft tannins, and very drinkable, I will fully refund your money, including shipping charges."

Located in beautiful Hopland in the heart of Mendocino County

Hopland is in Southern Mendocino County, about 15 miles north of the Sonoma-Mendocino County line. It is an agricultural area with wine grapes the main crop. The town has a number of antique shops, restaurants, tasting rooms and one historic hotel. Hopland is about a 45 minute drive from Santa Rosa, CA on Highway 101, making it ideal for weekend getaways.

The Zmarzly Family Vineyards are in the hills 4 miles west of the town of Hopland, on a small county road. The high elevation (1250 to 1600 feet) offers a chance to see 25 mile views of the hills, valleys and nearby mountain ranges. The views are thrilling, especially the one from the knoll, a tree-studded hill within the vineyard.

Mendocino County is rural, sparsely populated, with spectacular views and very little traffic. Most of the wineries in Mendocino County are located along one of two corridors. Route 128 goes through Yorkville and Anderson Valley on its way to the Pacific Coast. Highway 101 traces north-to-south, with many wineries located from Hopland to Redwood Valley, just north of Ukiah.
