Winemaker Notes

Our Estate Chardonnay offers fresh fruit aromas of Fuji apple and citrus zest, complemented by notes of vanilla, toasted oak and caramel. The palate has bright acidity that is balanced with malolactic fermentation to give it a soft and round finish.

Critical Acclaim

WE 91
Wine Enthusiast

In this price range, this is one of the classiest Chardonnays currently on the market. Brightened with fine acidity, it's flavors of pineapple, buttered toast and cream are delicious. Editors' Choice

W&S 90
Wine & Spirits

This opens round and toasty, presenting green fig and sweet pineapple flavors that run through a rainwater-fresh finish. It closes on the stony savor of a pebble in the mouth, the fruit ending tart and firm. A wine to buy by the case and serve with any fruits de mer.

Firestone Vineyard specializes in expressive high-quality wines from estate and select vineyards in the Santa Ynez Valley and Paso Robles. Long considered a destination for visitors to Santa Barbara County's wine country, Firestone produces an array of Bordeaux-influenced wines in competitively-priced categories.

Founded in 1972 by Leonard and Brooks Firestone, Firestone Vineyard was Santa Barbara County’s first estate winery. In September 2007, Bill Foley acquired the Firestone winery and 380 vineyard acres in Los Olivos, as well as the Firestone tasting room in Paso Robles. Bill has continued the Firestone tradition in striving for the very best in vineyard management and cutting edge winemaking discipline. The vineyard focuses on optimal physiological balance in the vines yielding wines that are brightly flavored, crisp and delicious. Estate Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Sauvignon Blanc and Syrah vineyards are located on a series of mesas that have gravelly sub-soils, ideally oriented for perfect exposure.

Pinot Noir

View all wine

One of the most difficult yet rewarding grapes to grow, Pinot Noir is commonly referred to by winemakers as the “heartbreak grape.” However, the greatest red wines of Burgundy prove that it is unquestionably worth the effort. More reflective than most varieties of the land on which it is grown, Pinot Noir prefers a cool climate, requires low yields to achieve high quality, and demands care in the vineyard and lots of attention in the winery. It is an important component of Champagne and the only variety permitted in red Burgundy. Pinot Noir enjoys immense popularity internationally, most notably in Oregon, California, and New Zealand.

In the Glass

Pinot Noir Is all about red fruit—strawberry, raspberry, and cherry. It is relatively pale in color with soft tannins and lively acidity. It ranges in body from very light to the heavier side of medium, typically landing somewhere in the middle—giving it extensive possibilities for food pairing. With age (of which the best examples can handle an astounding amount), it can develop hauntingly beautiful characteristics of fresh earth, autumn leaves, and truffles.

Perfect Pairings

Pinot’s healthy acidity cuts through the oiliness of pink-fleshed fish like salmon, ocean trout, and tuna. Its mild mannered tannins don’t fight with spicy food, and give it enough structure to pair with all sorts of poultry—chicken, quail, and especially duck. As the namesake wine of Boeuf Bourguignon, it can even match with heavier fare. Pinot Noir is also very vegetarian-friendly—most notably with any dish that features mushrooms.

Sommelier Secret

Pinot Noir is dangerously drinkable, highly addictive, and has a bad habit of emptying the wallet. Look for affordable but still delicious examples from Germany (as Spätburgunder), Italy (as Pinot Nero), Chile, New Zealand, and France’s Loire Valley and Alsace regions.
