Cool morning fog sweeps from the Pacific Ocean over the Russian River Valley nearly every day. This unique climate produces diurnal swings ranging from 35 to 40 degrees F, allowing the delicate Chardonnay grapes to ripen longer on the vine. As a result, Russian River Valley Chardonnay typically sees an increase in flavor and complexity.
The Chardonnay grapes for this wine were hand-picked and whole-cluster pressed to retain optimum flavor and integrity of the fruit. Sourcing from our favorite vineyards allows us to showcase the bright fruit flavors while allowing for a great acidic structure.
