We sourced the grapes from our Paris Valley Ranch in San Lucas and the Ventana Vineyard in Arroyo Seco. Paris Valley Ranch is located in a deep canyon with ideal, well-draining soils and protection from Monterey Bay’s steady winds. These grapes add delicious melon and grapefruit character to the wine. The Ventana Vineyard, located where the Arroyo Seco River leaves the Santa Lucia Mountains, has soils scattered with river stones known as "Greenfield potatoes.” Almost impossible to cultivate, yet fostering exceptional grapes, this cooler location adds complex minerality and green-apple notes to the wine.

Producer
Perched high on the western slopes of the remote Gavilan Mountain Range, 1,800 feet above California’s Salinas Valley, Chalone Vineyard represents a singular convergence of terroir and winemaking. Here thin, well-drained limestone-based soils combine with a sunny, wind-cooled microclimate and limited rainfall to produce fruit of unique richness and character that demonstrate this vineyard’s typicity. Originally planted in 1919, the vineyard’s ability to yield benchmark Chardonnay was discovered when Chalone Wine Group cofounder Dick Graff made his first vintage here in 1966. The time-honored Burgundian techniques he introduced complement the fruit’s inimitable character to create the full bouquet and hedonistic flavors that are Chalone Vineyard Chardonnay’s hallmarks.
