There's a wonderful link between the Creator of the fruit, the vineyard manager, the Creator of the terroir, the creator of the wine, the barrel cooper and the end result. Artistry is woven into every part of our process, from our aged French barrels to the premium grapes we use from Napa, Sonoma, Lake County and surrounding areas. We’re proud that it has won our wines several awards since 2009. To find your favorites, come see us in The Tasting Room."

2016 premiere Chardonnay (unoaked) — Carneros, CALIFORNIA
This early bottling of our world-class Chardonnay is one of our "Three Sisters," along with the Canaan Cardonnay and the Buerre Blanc Chardonnay. It begins with beautiful white grapefruit and pear cider on the nose. As soon as you sip it, the fresh acid and bright citrus reveal the true beauty of the Chardonnay grape – tastes like a green apple and pear tart with a caramel drizzle on top of whipped cream. Layers of Meyer Lemon marmalade, tar and white plum/pluot on the palate. Smooth, clean finish makes your mouth dance for joy — watch it or you’ll start bustin’ out a new move!
Pairs well with cheese plates, appetizers, salads and skin-on chicken or sauces with fat. // Serve at 58–60° // $26.00 A Chardonnay A Day!
2016 Canaan Chardonnay (oaked) — Carneros, CALIFORNIA
This is one of our "Three Sisters," along with the Premiere and the Buerre Blanc Chardonnays. It has a natural sweetness from the neutral French Oak barrels, in which it was aged for a full year before bottling. It has the same beautiful white grapefruit and pear cider on the nose, but adds some nice banana and vanilla, and you'll notice that the beautiful acids have been softened a little. Smooth and clean but softer finish makes your mouth dance for joy, but the softness makes you reach for more food to go with this beauty!
Pairs well with cheese plates, appetizers, salads and skin-on chicken or sauces with fat. // Serve at 58–60° // $26.00 A Soft Kiss!
2015 beurre blanc (mlf) chardonnay — carneros, CA
This beautiful Chardonnay from Carneros is the sister to the Premiere and Canaan Chardonnays, except it was aged in neutral French Oak for a year, and underwent malolactic fermentation, which softened this beauty on the palate. Same great pear tart flavor, but with some butter and vanilla notes. This is not your typical overdone buttery Chard. It is more subtle on the palate, but the finish is delightful and is where the butter and oak really shine. Your mouth will be singing this wine’s praises! Pairs well with appetizers, salads, salmon and chicken on the grill. Or sip by itself! // Serve at 60-64° // $26 Gimme some Buddah!
2015 viognier — southern oregon
This Viognier from Talent, OR is exactly what we love in this varietal. It is a little lighter style of Viognier - not overly ripe, syrupy or oily as many are. This is a beautiful Old World style Viognier with a perfumed nose of honey suckle, orange blossom and white flowers. This Rhone beauty presents white peaches, vanilla, nutmeg and a long, peachy finish. Its bright acidity goes well with foods, yet it is very refreshing as a precusor to a meal or with any appetizer plate. This delight was fermented in stainless steel and bottled directly, without any oak influence, so you get the pure essence of this amazing grape.
Pairs well with appetizers, salads, Autumn dishes and any light-flesh meats from the grill. Or sip by itself! // Serve at 60-64° // $24 Love ya, Honey!
2016 L'Orange (Rhone field blend) — capay, ca
Our latest addition to our white offerings, this is known as an "orange" wine because of the beautiful amber color. A field blend of Rousanne, Marsanne and Grenache Blanc, this was a total experiment - one that worked! This smells and tastes like ripe nectarines with white flowers on the nose, with a big mouthfeel and white peaches on the long finish. It has slight tannins which provide great structure to this amazing wine. What the whaaaat?!?!?!?
Pair chilled with appetizers, salads, charcuterie plates, pate (just no soft cheeses or items with garlic). Enjoy on the boat, by the river, in the shade, by the fire... pretty much anywyhere! // Serve at 60-64° // $22 Fruity Patootie!

On the nose you’ll be reminded of Watermelon and Strawberry Jolly Rancher © candies. This Rosé bursts with the flavor of strawberry jam, but also boasts a long fruity finish. It’s clean & crisp — a perfect summertime wine.

This wine is AMAZING, presenting a nose of blackberry, cherry, strawberry, star anise and dark chocolate. this givers way to sweet red and black fruiot, black pepper, tar and dark chocolate (can one have too much chocolate with a deep red wine?).
