Chuy Vineyard, Sonoma Valley Chardonnay

Chardonnay

Chuy Vineyard

Anderson Valley

Sitting at 1000 feet above the Sonoma Valley, the Chuy Vineyard was planted in 1964 by legendary viticulturalist Jesus "Chuy" Ordaz. Situated on a band of rocky, low nutrient soils with little to no water. The dry-farmed, head-trained Wente clone vines are known for tiny grape yields derived from "chicks & hens" (irregular clusters). Farming grapes here is difficult but the rewards are the long-lived, soil-driven wines that ensue.
