Description

The vineyards are dry-farmed, resulting in water stress throughout the growing season. Given this farming method, the vines over decades take on an individual character in the vineyard. As you walk the rows, you see that some are strong, some are weak, and many are just right. This vineyard diversity gives a "core" of energy to the wines.

Harvested in late August and early September, they pick an average of 1.5 tons of grapes per acre. These low yields are an essential key to our quality: Infertile soils, windswept high mountain sites; and our heritage clone--taken from Burgundy 120 years ago. These all combine to make the Estate Chardonnay sing.

The Wine Country.
