Like a silk robe or satin sheets our 2018 Napa Chardonnay seduces with thrilling texture. Creamy pear, crème brulee, white nectarine and gardenia blossom sprinkled with vanilla spice, it is simply delicious and irresistible. Finely structured yet opulent to the core, it is graced with a long, luscious finish.
Chardonnay is whole cluster pressed, barrel fermented and aged sur lies with batonnage in 100% French oak for 11-15 months, undergoing 100% malolactic fermentation, then bottled unfined and unfiltered.

In 1992 Randy and Debbie Lewis established a small family winery in Napa Valley and were later joined by their son Dennis in 1999.
We are literally hands-on in every aspect of vineyard management, winemaking, sales and distribution, and we thrive on this challenge and the relationships we cultivate in the process. It is our continuing goal to create world-class wines. Our total production is approximately 9,000 cases annually of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc
The unique style of our wine begins in the vineyards. We're in the vineyards year round, walking the rows during every developmental stage: from pruning to bud break, bloom to set, and veraison to harvest. We learn more every year about each unique vineyard and strive to make better wine as a result.
We source the finest fruit from Calistoga, St. Helena, Rutherford and Oak Knoll for our red varietals. Our Chardonnay comes from Oak Knoll and Russian River Valley. Each site was selected for a specific varietal character, with many of the vineyards being planted exclusively for us. We've chosen low vigor rootstocks and a selection of clones to give us balanced vines and modest yields, producing maximum flavors.
