The Estate Chardonnay grapes are also grown in an ideal location south of Yountville. There, the cooler bay-influenced temperatures and breezes create fruit of superior quality and unique character.
The worldwide reputation of Burgess wines lies in the fact that they are always in perfect harmony, fully integrated to form a "total impression". Maximum varietal character, firm oak, good body, and long, complex finish are stressed. These attributes are controlled through painstaking attention to the estate vineyards and labor intensive old world winemaking techniques; all brought together with the most modern technology.

About Napa Valley
It's hard not to think of Napa Valley when thinking of California wines. The region is, after all, the one that brought world recognition to California wine making. The area was settled by a few choice wine families in the 1960's who bet that the wines of the area would grow and flourish. They were right. The Napa wine industry really took off in the 1980's, when vineyard lands were scooped up and vines were planted throughout the county. A number of wineries emerged, from large conglomerates to small boutiques to cult classics. Cabernet Sauvignon is definitely the grape of choice here, with many winemakers also focusing on Bordeaux Blends. Whites are usually Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc.
