    Winemaker Notes

    Monthaven Chardonnay is crafted from selected vineyards throughout California's diverse Central Coast, with a focus on fruit from Santa Barbara and Monterey. The Santa Barbara components deliver rich tropical notes on both the nose and palate, while cool climate Monterey components deliver crisp apple notes and balanced acidity. To show the best of Central Coast Chardonnay's varietal nature, Monthaven is a blend of cold fermented, barrel fermented and barrel aged wines. The result: a wine full of flavor, with balanced acidity and a clean finish.

    About the Octavin
    Octavin Home Wine Bar's patent-pending package design prevents oxidation. Every glass tastes as fresh and flavorful as if the wine was just opened, even up to six weeks after your first sip. It's the perfect choice for those interested in just one glass with dinner.

    Octavin Home Wine Bar's innovative design allows us to invest in making great wine, not expensive packaging. By eliminating heavy glass and expensive cork and closures, we reduce the cost of packaging and shipping, and pass on those savings to you. While each Octavin contains the equivalent of four standard bottles of distinctive artisan wine, you often end up paying the price of just three bottles.

    So go ahead and break the glass habit--and mother nature just might thank you for it. By choosing Octavin Home Wine Bar over four carbon-inefficient heavy glass bottles, you reduce packaging waste by at least 85% and carbon emissions by 55%.

    Monthaven Winery, California
    With almost 30 years of experience working exclusively at wineries in California's Central Coast, artisan winemaker JeffYamamoto knows a thing or two about the area's dozens of microclimates. Starting in quality control roles, moving into the cellar, then onto general management responsibilities, Jeff's hands-on experience in every step of the winemaking process has created a stickler for the details. Crafting Monthaven at California's "largest small-lot winery" allows Jeff to keep grapes from different microclimates and vineyard blocks separate. He then uses his decade of cellar management experience to customize his barreling approach for each wine. Based on their individual characteristics, specific lots are selected for barrel fermentation or barrel aging to maximize the distinctiveness of each blend. Jeff largely prefers American oak for Monthaven wines to assure that the fruit flavors shine through, accented by balanced oak notes and agreeable tannins. The winemaking techniques applied to Monthaven wines are usually reserved for wines over $20 bottle. "My goal with these wines is to balance the fruit, acid and oak components in a way that allows the fruit to shine in the best possible light, reflecting the Central Coast expression of each varietal's nature."

    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.
