We source from some of the oldest, most storied Chardonnay vines in our region, and always seek to produce a finished wine of great balance. The own-rooted vines at Rancho Viñedo Vineyard in Santa Maria Valley were planted in 1973 to the legendary Wente clone 72. We complement these old vines with subtle new French oak aging that preserves the brightness and character of the fruit.
