This sparkling wine is really nice and refreshing

I am usually not into Chardonnay’s but theirs is a nice crisp Chardonnay without the overly oaky flavors.

I love how they are doing sustainable farming, allowing for natural predators and reduced use of pesticides.  It is a hospitable environment for vine and fruit growth.  They regularly hand-tend each and every vine, the family is gradually learning that effective and efficient sustainable practices can indeed make a significant difference in both the local environment and in the grape and wine quality.  Hopefully one day they wont use any pesticides.

I bought the Chardonnay, it is unoaked which is harder to come by.  It is a crisp wine with a bit of citrus, pear and honey.

Located on the corner of Highway 46 West and Vineyard Drive nestled in the hills of Templeton, CA.
