Mayacamas Estate vineyards are carved from a second growth forest at about 1,100 feet elevation. Our southwest facing vineyards in the Mayacamas Mountains provide a distinctive "terroir" for our wines. In total, we have about 16 acres of mountain vineyards. On the Mayacamas Estate we began vineyard development in 1990 under the guiding hand of Napa Valley vineyard management legend, Laurie Wood. From 1998 to 2011, our vineyards were managed by Frank Leeds of Leeds-Pesch Organic Vineyard Consulting, a true pioneer in organic farming in the Napa Valley.
The grapes for this Chardonnay were sourced from a vineyard in the southern part of the Napa Valley, close to the cooling influences of the San Pablo Bay. The classic texture of this varietal shines while preserving the wine's natural acidity. Aromatics of Meyer lemon, candied orange peel, white flowers, and oyster shell marry with a lively textured palate that has a refreshingly acid-driven finish.
