Our Chardonnay grapes come from a small vineyard in the Santa Cruz Mountains where the soil, slope, and sea breeze contribute to a complex flavor profile. All vintages 2013 and earlier were made from the prized Corton-Charlemagne clone, cultivated in only one place in California. This clone is known for it's deep golden color, and rich mouth feel. All vintages 2014 and later are made from a new clone from the same vineyard, as all the Corton-Charlemagne vines were torn up after the 2013 harvest due to a virus.
Our Chardonnay is usually made in small batches such that one sells out just as the next is released, meaning that usually only one is available for sale at any given time. However, we almost always have one on our weekend tasting list, so stop by and give it a try!
We are currently sold out of Chardonnay.
