Winemaker Notes

While Sante Arcangeli has become known for quiet restraint in their mountain-grown Chardonnay, sometimes it's fun to let a voluptuous blonde dance on the table tops at your party. She's fruit-driven with a silky body on the mid-palate, but not a fruit bomb or oak bomb: Vivid Kiwi and Fuji apple with subtle passionfruit notes greet you up front, alongside a softer underside of creme brulee and caramel. They've dialed back on the new oak for the 2013 vintage, which complements the rich acidity of Split Rail vineyard.

Wine Enthusiast
From a vineyard 1,700 feet above the small town of Corralitos comes this tasty wine that begins with aromas of smoked ap- ple, lemon zest, honeysuckle and sea salt, as well as a struck-match element. The palate shows flavors of fresh apple, chamomile and a dusting of crushed vanilla, all set against a chalky grip.

Sante Arcangeli, California
Sante Arcangeli Winery Image
Sante Arcangeli was the name of John Benedetti's, owner/winemaker, great grandfather. He died in 1934 at the very young age of 47, but not before fathering 3 remarkable children and building an historic business on the north coast of California, in the small farming town of Pescadero.

John named the winery after his great grandfather as a means of honoring all those in my family who came before and provided him the tools to do what he loves to do. John says, "Having taught myself to brew beer in my late teens/early 20s, I segued to wine in my mid-30s after many years of successful and creative brewing, with the help of Ryan Beauregard ,the Brassfield family, and James MacPhail, all of whom acted in varying capacities as friends, mentors and teachers. It started as a hobby. Now it’s a hobby gone haywire. My first barrel of wine was pinot noir, fermented with native yeast, from a very rare Santa Cruz Mountains vineyard. Jumped right into the deep end of the pool, with a goal to make delicate, layered, nuanced pinot noir and chardonnay in Santa Cruz."

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.
