The grapes used to produce the Nancie Chardonnay come from a variety of vineyard sources, resulting in a multi-layered wine. The 2014 captures our desire to make an exceptional Sonoma County Chardonnay that is rich and delicious, while also preserving minerality and freshness. To create a complex Chardonnay, we sought out different AVAs to produce a wine that could never exist from a single site. The result is a Chardonnay with great fruit concentration and minerality from an old vineyard in the Russian River, stone fruit and elegance from a vineyard in the Sonoma Coast, crème-brulée and chalkiness from the Bennett Valley and a touch of exotic fruit from our dry-farmed, estate Chardonnay vineyard.Visit Our Store
The Nancie Chardonnay comes from four vineyards: two reside on Sonoma Mountain and are influenced by cool ocean breezes, rocky soils, and high elevation. The third is a Russian River Valley property bearing 30+ year old vines. The fourth is a unique parcel nestled in a hillside in the cool Green Valley.

Exciting notes of fresh pear, mandarin orange and ripe peach. On the palate, stone-fruit melds into wildflower honey and crème-brulée. Driven acidity harmonizes with fullness to keep this wine clean, yet intense and thrilling.
