Item Description

This is a superb wine from an extraordinary vintage. Beautifully reductive, aromas of white peach and hazelnut are slowly revealed with a few swirls of the glass. Carefully balanced on the acidic side, the 2016 Chardonnay has weight without heaviness, elegance without formality and drinkability without seeming to care. It is a food wine. Adept with a platter of oysters but more than willing to take on the richest, creamiest sauce. It should develop for many years to come.

Frog's Leap VineyardsMy 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.
