Appellation

A warm spring laid the groundwork for early budbreak, and an unusually early harvest – the earliest in over a decade. Overall, quality was outstanding with flavorful fruit with bright aromatics.
Chardonnay is the most widely plant variety in the Mendocino appellation. It is part of the North Coast AVA, located about 90 miles north of San Francisco. It is bordered by the Coastal Mountain range, redwood forests to the north and the Pacific ocean to the west.
