From the mountain top of Mt. Veeder, to the benchlands of Napa Valley and down into the coastal valley of Monterey, our Chardonnays capture the crisp and clean aromatic and flavor essence of each distinct region, making them a delicious choice for every occasion.
From vineyard to your glass, this fruit gets special attention, and is offered in a pure, Chablis like style that is crisp and clean, with touches of minerality and a surprising creaminess that comes from lees stirring bi-weekly
“This wine pairs well with poached or grilled seafood, shrimp or crab with spicy aioli, baby greens tossed in citrus honey vinaigrette, avocados, fruit salsa, shaved fennel, tangerines and triple crème cheeses.” ~ Chad Hendrickson, Executive Chef
Monterey’s combination of moderate climate and marine influences from the Pacific Ocean keep the grapes on an even keel, able to develop fully ripe flavors that tend to show some lemon and lime zest, a touch of ripe apple and tropical aromas and flavors.
