    Winemaker Notes

    Green apple and honeysuckle aromas are closely followed by pretty stone fruit, white peach and apricot, with just the right touch of soft, toasty vanilla. Medium-bodied entry spreads out on the palate with crisp fruit and toasty flavors, vibrant, salivating acidity and a long finish.

    Big Max, California
    In 1942, the last Brown Bear was spotted in Northern California…at least that’s what we thought. Turns out that the kids who attended the Bar 49 Summer Camp on the Keith Family land (now known as Maxville) had a run in with a Brown Bear in the 60’s. He was legendary, the stuff of folklore…the subject of campfire circle stories for decades. His name was Big Max. The 1,000-acre Maxville Lake property is nestled within the Vaca Mountains in the Chiles Valley District of Napa Valley, California. In the 1960s, the land was used to host a nature-focused summer camp for children. Grapes were planted on the property in 1974, as part of the camp's agricultural program. Recognizing the quality of the grapes, a winery was built there in 1996, along with an extensive underground cave that can accommodate 2,000 barrels of wine. Maxville Lake purchased the property in 2014 and harvested its first vintage of grapes from the estate vineyards. They renovated the entire winery to be a cutting edge, state-of-the-art facility. The area's volcanic soil, high elevation and unique climate provide ideal grape-growing conditions. Maxville wines are hand-crafted by executive winemaker George Bursick, and are wines of remarkable quality and consistency.

    The largest and perhaps most varied of California’s wine-growing regions, the Central Coast produces a good majority of the state's wine. This vast district stretches from San Francisco all the way to Santa Barbara along the coast, and reaches inland nearly all the way to the Central Valley.

    Encompassing an extremely diverse array of climates, soil types and wine styles, it contains many smaller sub-AVAs, including San Francisco Bay, Monterey, the Santa Cruz Mountains, Paso Robles, Edna Valley, Santa Ynez Valley and Santa Maria Valley.

    While the region could probably support almost any major grape varietiy, it is famous for a few. Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon and Zinfandel are among the major ones. The Central Coast is home to many of the state's small, artisanal wineries crafting unique, high-quality wines, as well as larger producers also making exceptional wines.

    One of the most popular and versatile white wine grapes, Chardonnay offers a wide range of flavors and styles depending on where it is grown and how it is made. While it tends to flourish in most environments, Chardonnay from its Burgundian homeland produces some of the most remarkable and longest lived examples. California produces both oaky, buttery styles and leaner, European-inspired wines. Somm Secret—The Burgundian subregion of Chablis, while typically using older oak barrels, produces a bright style similar to the unoaked style. Anyone who doesn't like oaky Chardonnay would likely enjoy Chablis.
