ONEHOPE California Chardonnay 2009
Chardonnay from California
- white wine
- Fruity & Smooth
- 13.5% abv
ONEHOPE Chardonnay is hand-crafted with a blend of grapes from select vineyards throughout Napa, Sonoma and the Central Coast of California. Our Chardonnay is blended with Muscat and Chenin
Blanc displaying a pale gold color with aromas of fresh apple blossom and honeysuckle. Flavors of crisp pear and apple are vibrant on the palate, while its balanced oak and bright acidity makes this wine a great match with broiled or grilled seafood,
poultry dishes and a wide assortment of cheeses.
Women in the US have a 1 in 8 chance of developing
breast cancer. ONEHOPE donates half of pro?ts from the
sale of every bottle of its Chardonnay to Gateway for
Cancer Research to provide women with clinical trials to
treat and cure breast cancer. We believe it's incredibly
important to support people who otherwise do not have
any options. Gateway for Cancer Research provides
cutting edge clinical trials to breast cancer patients who do
not qualify for other types of treatment, while also
constantly searching for the cure for breast cancer.

About Other California
California has nearly 100 American Viticulture Areas (AVAs) and accounts for almost 90% of wine production in the United States. In our section of Other California, we include wines from smaller AVAs as well as wines from the California AVA. Here are a few smaller AVAs you may see on the label:
Livermore Valley AVA, located right outside of San Francisco and home to wineries such as Wente.
Lodi County AVA, an AVA further east of San Francisco and known for its excellent, old-vine Zinfandels.
San Francisco Bay AVA, a sprawling AVA that covers Contra Costa, Santa Clara and Santa Cruz counties, to name a few.
Wine that holds only the California AVA is typically a wine that includes grapes from a number of different AVAs, which leads to the general labeling of the wine as California. This does not denote the quality of the wine, only the diversity of where the grapes originate.
It's not rare to see a wine's country of origin listed as "California." A country into itself in the wine world, California makes enough varieties and styles to match many European wine countries. It produces a diverse range of wines that span the quality spectrum.
The most famous of the California wine regions is Napa Valley, and these wines are certainly outstanding – but it's not as broad and diverse as its larger neighbor, Sonoma County. Down south, Santa Barbara's Santa Maria Valley is well-known for its Rhône blends, as well as cool-climate varieties like Pinot and Chardonnay. The Central Coast, the largest California AVA, has many different microclimates that lead to a wide range of wines with many sub-AVAs.

This is a great Chardonnay with a perfect amount of oak and malo. There is a touch of sweetness on the finish that really makes it unique. I highly recommend this Chard, its my favorite. I've also had family directly touched by breast cancer, so the fact that they donate half their profit to National Breast Cancer Foundation is just an extra bonus.
Alcohol By Volume Guide
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.
