    Winemaker Notes

    Wonderful intensity, minerality and brightness, for which Hyde Vineyard Chardonnays are renowned, define this wine.Crisp tangerine, white peach and a hint of richer tropical fruits are displayed alongside honeysuckle, floral notes. Naturally handcrafted, this wine is unfined and unfiltered, clarified onlyby careful racking before bottling to maintain complexity and suppleness.

    Stomping Girl, Carneros, California
    Image of winery
    Stomping Girl Wines was founded in honor of my grandmother, who began our family’s winemaking tradition in Israel, recruiting my younger sister and me to stomp grapes during the harvest. Two generations later, in 2003, my wife, Kathryn, and I began making wine in our Berkeley, CA home wine cellar, enlisting the help of our three children. In 2008, we proudly produced 100 cases for our first commercial vintage.

    Working in partnership with farmers growing grapes at some of the top vineyards in the Russian River Valley, Carneros, and the Sonoma Coast, we are dedicated to crafting superb Pinot Noir and Chardonnay using traditional, minimalist techniques influenced by time spent in Burgundy.

    In 2009 and 2010, production grew to 500 cases at a winey location in Berkeley. This urban setting helped foster close relationships with customers and the community. In 2011 we moved to a shared winery in Sebastopol, CA, where we produce close to 1000 cases per year. Active in both Sebastopol as well as our Berkeley outpost, we feel extremely lucky to have the best of both worlds. Though the winery location has changed over the years, our winemaking methods and close relationships with our growers partners have not. We feel very lucky to be able to pursue our passion.

    Carneros

    View all wine

    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. Its close proximity to the San Francisco Peninsula and the San Pablo Bay is instrumental in controlling the climate of the area. The winds from the San Pablo Bay create a cooling effect ideal for producing wines with crisp acidity and balanced flavors.

    This cooler pocket of California lends itself to growing Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, and more recently, Old-World style Syrah. While more delicate than most wines from neighboring regions, these are firmly structured, complex, and full of flavor. Carneros is also an important source of sparkling wines made in the style of Champagne.

    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.
