Interesting Winemaking Technique

This wine was made with no sulpher additions from harvest until bottling.

Barrel-aged

Like the great Chardonnays of Burgundy, we age this wine for two winters (15 months) in barrel.

Noteworthy Topography

We blend grapes from two hillside sites - one in Sonoma County and one in Anderson Valley - that give this Chardonnay bright acidity and balance.
