The resulting wines are interesting blends of distinct quality and character. In establishing their own spin on a white blend, the winemakers seek out interesting Rhône and aromatic varietals that nicely complement a classic Chardonnay base. They partner with growers dedicated to cultivating alternative varietals in their outstanding vineyard sites to create an intriguing wine with bold flavor.
