"100% made from Organic Grapes
Much of the complexity and style of the 2013 Frog's Leap Chardonnay comes from the unique combination of barrel fermentation followed by aging in concrete vats. The result is a wine with compelling flavors and a bright crisp mouthfeel. Lightly scented citrus and stone fruit aromatics are followed by flavors of apricot, wet-stone and vanilla. Seductive and elegant, you will be tempted to a second and third sip. The beauty of this wine immediately opens up culinary possibilities rarely found in bigger California Chardonnays: crusted halibut, oysters (prepared any way), oven-roasted chicken breast, or fresh Dungeness crab with some hot garlic butter. It's the perfect dinner companion. You will not be disappointed! " ~ Winery notes

My grandfather always said that you could pretty much tell how good a farmer was by how straight his fences were. Perhaps the Napa Valley equivalent would be that you can predict the quality of a winery's product by the health of their vines. After four decades of making wine in the Napa Valley, I am proud to say that Frog's Leap grows almost all of our own grapes. And a visit to the winery always starts in our beautiful vineyards.
For more than 25 years we've been well known for our advancement of the principles of organic grape growing, dry farming and many aspects of biodynamics. It would be understandable for one to attribute our actions to a deeply held political agenda or, quite the opposite, to a thinly veiled marketing plan. While both are fair assumptions, neither are true. In point of fact, it has always been wine quality that drives our farming choices.
