From our family to yours, raise a glass with us and celebrate what’s most important: joy, love and quality.
– John, Rondi & the Nale Family
The bend in the San Joaquin River cradles lush vineyards where the history of Croatian winemaking springs to life. We are the Nale family, and this is our home. Our connection to the old country brings the coastal Dalmation heritage of Croatia’s wines to the most fertile farmland in the world. Ziveli wines are like us – European roots with a decidedly Californian twist. In fact, the names of our wines are reflective of our connection to the San Joaquin Valley and the important role the river plays in our growing operation.
This is a place to be “in the moment.” Every design detail of our facility and wine production process is an expression of our family’s love of each other and our zest for life. Our tasting room spreads out into a 5,000 square foot barn where you can enjoy and purchase our wines, or join us for one of our special events. Ziveli (pronounced zhe vah lee’), or rather Živjeli, is the Croatian word for “Cheers” and serves as the mantra for how we want our customers to feel when they enjoy what we’ve created. So from our family to yours, raise a glass with us and celebrate what’s most important: joy, love, and quality.
