2021 Chardonnay,
Rochioli Vineyard

$85 / bottle

Few wineries have the privilege of making a Rochioli Vineyard wine. Virtually all are turned down. Mutual respect and a legacy of quality built our families’ partnership.


The Rochioli family has grown grapes on their property since the late ‘50s. The vineyard is now farmed by the third generation. Our 2021 Rochioli blend is 82% Mid-40 block and 18% River block.

Harvest Dates: Aug 31
Brix: 22.9˚
Soil: Yolo sandy loam and overwash, derived from sedimentary formation in alluvial fans
Clones: Our rows from Mid-40 block are Clones 5 (planted 1995) and 76 (1995 & 1998). Our rows from River block are Clone 5 (1989).
AVA: Russian River Valley


Varietal Composition: 100% Chardonnay
Fermentation: We press whole grape clusters for phenolic delicacy. Native yeast and full native malolactic fermentation take place in barrel, with sur lies bâtonnage.
Aging: After aging 20 months in 20% new Taransaud Beaune French oak barrels, the Chardonnay was traditionally fined for clarity and texture and bottled without filtration in June 2023.
