Named for Joe's mother, the matriarch of the family, Nancie Chardonnay is made from a quartet of cool, Sonoma County vineyards. Two are perched on Sonoma Mountain and influenced by cool ocean breezes, rocky soils, and high elevation. The third is a Russian River Valley property bearing 30+ year old vines that grow a wine both rich and mineral in texture. The fourth and newest to the blend is a unique parcel nestled in a hillside in the cool Green Valley. Together, these properties showcase an enticing ensemble of slow-ripening vineyards in California sunshine.
