There's nothing like a White Christmas, but here on the Central Coast we rarely get snow. So, we drink win instead! This 3 pack has the perfect wine spectrum ranging from a crisp, stainless-steal Sauvignon Blanc to a floral and fruity Viognier to the light, smooth and creamy Chardonnay.
We love a challenge and 2011 was one. Cooler weather meant it took about three weeks longer to ripen. We harvested from two different blocks of a single vineyard and fermented in stainless steel barrels. We fermented half in stainless steel for brightness; the other half in oak to smooth out the green notes. Then we blended them back together for a complexity that reflects the best of both worlds. Proving once again that good things come to those who wait an extra three weeks.
Chardonnay is our flagship wine, and is still crafted in the style of the 1973 Chardonnay made by Mike Grgich that won the famous 1976 Paris tasting. The grapes come from our cool southern Napa Valley vineyards which like all our vineyards are farmed according to natural cycles and using no artifical fertilizers, pesticides or fungicides.
