Winemaker's Notes:

Our seventh vintage of the Lucia Highlands Vineyard Chardonnay is characteristically rich and elegant, offering butter, prailine ice cream, with deeply concentrated layers of apple, ripe pear, and pineapple, and a hint of caramel from oak aging. The lingering butterscotch finish, coupled with firm natural acidity, will invite you back for continued enjoyment. Pair this wine with grilled chicken, pork, or creamy pasta dishes.

About Pessagno Winery:

Pessagno Winery is the culmination of a twenty-year vision of Stephen Pessagno, winemaker, to produce limited quantities of exclusive, prestigious single vineyard wines from Monterey and San Benito counties.

Established in 1999 with family and friends, Pessagno Winery is nestled in the scenic Santa Lucia Highlands of Monterey county overlooking the Salinas River where cool climate Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes flourish.

All Pessagno wines are styled for elegance, balance, and finesse, with an emphasis on the maximum varietal character of the grape and respect for the unique expression of each vineyard's Terroir.

Each vineyard is carefully selected for the high quality of its fruit and meticulously overseen during the growing season to intensify the aromas and flavors of the grapes. The wines are handcrafted in separate lots using only the finest winemaking techniques and traditional French oak barrels.
