2020 Estate Chardonnay, Westside Farms
A dream come true: owning an Estate vineyard of this caliber was always our goal. We proudly continue the property’s agricultural legacy that spans over a century and a half. Westside Farms, our 75-acre ranch, has been in farmland since the mid-1800s and borders a mile and a half of the Russian River. The vineyard shares the same silty Yolo loam soils as Rochioli Vineyard a mile north.
Harvest Dates: Aug 21
We press whole clusters for phenolic delicacy. After fermentation and aging for 20 months entirely in concrete egg, the Chardonnay was traditionally fined for clarity and texture and bottled without filtration in June 2022.
