Our flagship Chardonnay is fermented in both stainless steel and barrels to maintain its fresh flavors and aromatics while imparting texture and complexity. Each sip beckons another, with hints of vanilla and crème brûlée, complemented by notes of citrus and stone fruit. Beautifully balanced and vibrant, this wine is sure to convert any wine lover into a Chardonnay enthusiast.
Each vintage, Katherine’s Vineyard Chardonnay is a single-vineyard expression that captures our estate’s “refrigerated sunshine”— aka Santa Maria Valley's ocean influence, warm sun, and cool breeze. This layered, elegant, and distinct wine is crafted exclusively from the fog-swept vines of Katherine’s Vineyard, named after our proprietor Katie Jackson in 1986, and planted within ancient soils consisting of fossilized seashells, shale, limestone and sand.
Enjoy with grilled chicken and mango salsa, roast salmon and gruyere mac and cheese, or fish tacos.
