    Winemaker Notes

    Incredible aromas and flavors of lemon, apricot, and spicy candied citrus with lightly toasted hazelnuts and delicate notes of spice, star anise and mountain bramble. This chardonnay is very crisp, fresh and mineral driven with great acidity underscoring lively fruit flavors. It is very elegant and Burgundian in style with just a touch of the California richness making this wine great with food or all on its own.

    Wing Canyon, California
    To Wing Canyon Vineyard we go. The road is rough and rugged, with steep stretches that demand a functional 4WD and a sense of adventure. An alligator, four dogs and a giant buzzard are just a few of the creatures greeting you along the way. Seven-tenths of a mile in, after passing a fork that winds uphill to the ridge vineyard, is the tile-roofed residence and Wing Canyon Vineyard winery nestled in a grove of redwoods and madrones.

    Bill and Kathy Jenkins have been making wine here for over 25 years, sourcing grapes primarily from their steeply sloped, dry-farmed ridge vineyard. The wines are made in small lots and feature rich, concentrated and intense flavors, with dark red fruit, hints of Mount Veeder chaparral and spice, with firm, ripe tannins.

    Wing Canyon Vineyard produces estate-grown Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Cabernet Franc. The Winery sources grapes from nearby Yates Family Vineyard for their LOLITA Merlot, Syrah and Mt. Veeder Chardonnay.

    Centered at the peak for which it is named, Mount Veeder is Napa’s largest sub-AVA. But even though the entire appellation spreads over 16,000 acres, vineyards cover a mere 1,000. Scattered among Douglas firs and bristlecone pines, Mount Veeder vineyards extend south from the upper elevations of the Mayacamas Mountains—the highest point at 2,400 feet—to the border of the Carneros region. Less than 25 wineries produce wine from Mount Veeder fruit.

    Winemaking began early in this appellation. In 1864, Captain Stelham Wing presented the first Mount Veeder wine to the Napa County Fair; it came from today’s Wing Canyon Vineyard. Prohibition, of course, halted winemaking and viticulture wasn’t revitalized until the founding of Mayacamas Vineyards in 1951 and Bernstein Vineyards in 1964.

    The Bernstein Vineyards was actually home to the first Petit Verdot in California, planted in 1975. Today most of the Petit Verdot in Napa Valley originates from this vineyard.

    Rocky volcanic clay and ancient seabed matter dominate Mount Veeder soils—perfect for Bordeaux varieties. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Malbec, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot enjoy spectacular success. These varieties produce wines rich in brambly blackberry and black cherry fruit with herbal and floral aromatics. Structures are moderate to assertive and wines have great staying power.

    Chardonnay from Mount Veeder is lush, full and balanced mineral and fresh citrus flavors.

    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.
