    Winemaker Notes

    Dating back to its first use in 1849, "Chardenet" was the original spelling for the Chardonnay grape in France. Carneros Hills Winery produces limited amounts of vineyard designated wines under this name: one from the Durell Vineyard and one from Coteau Blanc, which is comprised of several choice blocks located within the Carneros Hills Vineyard.

    Apricot and tangerine elements on the nose are met with hints of jasmine, saffron , crème fraiche, and brown sugar. A broad stone-fruit entry on the palate is counter-balanced by notes of grilled orange and fresh fennel, while savory oyster shell and brioche flavors support a long, seamless finish.

    Wine lovers familiar with the Carneros region know that it spans the southern ends of Napa and Sonoma counties, and that on a clear day you can see across San Pablo Bay all the way to the spires of San Francisco, 20 nautical miles away. They know too—and can feel—the moist, chilly winds that almost constantly wash across Carneros, keeping temperatures moderate.

    Carneros Hills Winery is in the tenderloin of Carneros, south of the Carneros Highway. It is a new winery, established just in 2013. Despite its recent inception the winery has history and tradition behind it, having been the site of the historic Buena Vista Winery on the Sonoma side of the appellation, just over the Napa border. The winery underwent dramatic renovations in 2013-2014, including cutting-edge innovations for artisanal Pinot Noir production: hand-sorting systems, basket presses and a variety of fermentation vessels. Individual barrel rooms provide the ideal conditions for primary and secondary fermentations as well as aging.

    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.

    Known for elegant wines that combine power and finesse, Carneros is set in the rolling hills that straddle the southernmost parts of both Sonoma and Napa counties. The cooling winds from the abutting San Pablo Bay, combined with lots of midday California sunshine, create an ideal environment for producing wines with a perfect balance of crisp acidity and well-ripened fruit.

    This cooler pocket of California lends itself to growing Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Syrah. Carneros is an important source of sparkling wines made in the style of Champagne as well.
