Tom Burnham and Jim Tomasini established the vineyard and winery in Cottonwood, California in 2000. The wine making hobby quickly became an obsession. Their passion inspiring their family and friends to prune the vines and gather for the vineyard’s Spring Fling celebration. Each Fall, they would return to pick and press grapes and share stories at the Harvest Festival. The friendships grown at the Burnsini Vineyard are commemorated on the label’s top selling Zinfandel, Merlot, and Petite Sirah blend titled Friends.
