Item Description
As Chardonnay has become the most widely planted variety in Sonoma County we wanted to take the opportunity to make our own unique and compelling Chardonnay that supports our mission to share the heart of Sonoma County. Our Chardonnay captures everything we love about the varietys expression in Sonoma County. We have added in a small portion of our estate-grown Vermentino for a uniquely Seghesio twist, and set out to make a Chardonnay that is bright and focused with a kiss of oak and the pure, intense fruit characteristic of our signature style.

Tasting Notes
Bright and focused with notes of lemon curd and crushed stone on the nose that carry through to the palate. The wine is creamy and round on the palate, with a crystalline purity of fruit accented by a swathe of warm spice that comes from time spent in French oak barrels.

Food Pairing Notes
The finish is fresh and mouthwatering, making this wine a perfect match for a wide variety of seafood such as steamed clams, lobster, and halibut. Roast chicken or salmon in a beurre blanc would make a stunning pairing.
About Seghesio Wines
"Seghesio, based in Monforte, makes excellent wines that capture the best of the soft textural elements that are the hallmark of the modern school in Piedmont." – Antonio Galloni

The steep slopes of Seghesio's winery in Monforte d'Alba were not always carpeted in vines. It wasn't until 1964 when Ettore Seghesio, a tenant farmer working the land, saved enough money to purchase the farm from its owners – and had the foresight to plant vineyards of Nebbiolo! For many years, the family's grapes were sold off in bulk to other producers in the region. In 1998, Ettore's sons, Aldo and Riccardo, took over the family estate and began bottling wine under the Seghesio label. Their outstanding terroir, together with a perfect blend of traditional and modern vinification methods, results in the production of lovely wines that have been greatly praised by the Italian and international press. Riccardo is now at the helm of the estate after Aldo's sudden passing in 2010. In addition, Aldo's two sons, Sandro and Marco, and his daughter, Michela, now work full-time at the estate. This is truly a family operation steeped in tradition.
