Founder Gary Farrell was a passionate believer in great vineyards. Long before the Russian River Valley made its mark on the world stage, Gary was out exploring vineyards in the early 1980s to identify grapes from the most promising sites in the valley.
The specific conditions of the vineyards yield wines boasting bright, vibrant aromas, intense, yet supple flavors and exemplary balance. Our wines display these characteristics in spades, along with a remarkable purity and elegance of varietal expression.

"The 2013 Chardonnay Olivet Lane Vineyard has a slightly lighter gold/straw color. Plenty of strong minerality, wet stones, white currants, quince and honeysuckle are present in this full-bodied, complex and Burgundian-style Chardonnay. This is a beauty and still youthful. Drink it over the next decade."
