    Winemaker Notes

    Crisp and fruity aromas with top notes of apple blossom and stone fruit. Ripe, juicy apple, subtle Meyer lemon and bright acidity round out this fun, easy-going Chardonnay.

    Lucinda & Millie, North Coast, California
    Image of winery
    Lucinda & Millie Cabernet Sauvignon is made with 100% organic grapes from our beautiful, traditionally farmed vineyard just below Duncan Peak on the edge of the Sanel Valley near Hopland, CA. Alluvial deposits from the Russian River and its creekside tributaries create perfect soils to grow bright Cabernet and the cordon trained trellis system provides good cover from the afternoon sun.

    The Chardonnay is made with 100% organic grapes grown in two beautiful vineyards in Mendocino and Lake Counties. One near Ukiah, CA, farmed organically since 1998 by Mary Fetzer and her son Tyler, lying alongside the Russian River on alluvial benchland soils. The other near Clear Lake farmed organically for more than 20 years by iconic Lake County grower Ron Bartolucci, with a combination of volcanic clay and ash, and alluvial deposits.

    Lucinda, a 7 year old California Red sheep and Millie, a 3 year old Barnevelder chicken, happily coexist on one of our vineyard farms where grapes have been grown organically for over decades. Lucinda and her flock graze between the vineyard rows in the spring to keep cover crops under control. Millie and her flock are nearby gathering insects, worms and grasses to maintain a healthy, balanced farm.

    North Coast

    View all wine

    Reaching up California's coastline and into its valleys north of San Francisco, the North Coast AVA includes six counties: Marin, Solano, Napa, Sonoma, Mendocino and Lake. While Napa and Sonoma enjoy most of the glory, the rest produce no shortage of quality wines in an intriguing and diverse range of styles.

    Climbing up the state's rugged coastline, the chilly Marin County, just above the City and most of Sonoma County, as well as Mendocino County on the far north end of the North Coast successfully grow cool-climate varieties like Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and in some spots, Riesling. Inland Lake County, on the other hand, is considerably warmer, and Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel and Sauvignon Blanc produce some impressive wines with affordable price tags.

    Chardonnay

    View all wine

    One of the most popular and versatile white wine grapes, Chardonnay offers a wide range of flavors and styles depending on where it’s grown and how it’s made. In Burgundy, Chardonnay produces some of the finest white wines in the world, typically tending towards minimal intervention in the winery and at its best resulting in remarkable longevity. This grape is popular throughout the world, but perhaps its second most important home is in California, where both oaky, buttery styles and leaner, European-inspired wines enjoy great popularity. Oregon, Australia, South America, South Africa, and New Zealand are also significant producers of Chardonnay.

    In the Glass

    When planted on cool sites, Chardonnay’s flavors tend towards grapefruit, green apple, minerals, and white stone fruit, while warmer locations coax out richer, more tropical flavors of fig, melon, and pineapple. Oak can add notes of vanilla, coconut, and spice (as well as texture), while malolactic fermentation can impart soft, buttery acidity.

    Perfect Pairings

    Chardonnay is as versatile at the table as it is in the vineyard. The crisp, clean, Chablis-like styles go well with simple seafood, light chicken dishes, and salads. Richer Chardonnays marry well with cream or oil-based sauces.

    Sommelier Secret

    Since the 1990s, big, oaky, buttery Chardonnays from California have enjoyed explosive popularity. More recently, the pendulum has begun to swing in the opposite direction, towards a clean, crisp style that rarely utilizes new oak. These Old-World style wines have been dubbed the “New California Chardonnays,” and anyone who claims they do not like Chardonnay should give them a try.
