Sourced from four vineyards located at the southern end of Dry Creek Valley. The vineyards benefit from the cool microclimate and alluvial soils near the Russian River and produce wines of exceptional fruit and balance, culminating in Chardonnay of great character.  Certified California Sustainable Vineyard and Winery by the California Sustainable Winegrowing Alliance (CSWA).

“One of the old, iconic Italian families of Sonoma, the Pedroncellis have been farming vineyards since 1927. They obviously survived Prohibition, and consumers are all the better for it. Moreover, they have always had a humble philosophy in terms of pricing. Dollar-for-dollar, the Pedroncelli wines consistently offer both character and quality for their prices, something consumers should never forget.” – Robert Parker Jr., The Wine Advocate, December 2014.

90 pts. JamesSuckling.com, December 12, 2019. “A youthful array of fresh pear and lemon aromas lead to a palate that has spiced-pear focus and a smooth, flavorful finish. Drink now.”

90 pts. WineReviewOnLine.com, Marguerite Thomas, December 1, 2020. “This iconic Dry Creek Chardonnay is notably aromatic and has an appealing glossy texture. Eighty-five percent of the wine was fermented in stainless steel tanks with the rest aged in American oak barrels for eight months. Reasonably priced, relatively low in alcohol (13.5%) and boasting a convenient screw-cap closure, this is a good white wine choice for casual suppers. Try it with a cheese omelet, a tuna sandwich, or vegetarian carbonara.”

88 pts. Wine Spectator, February 29, 2020. “Richly spiced, featuring well-knit, medium-grained flavors of pear, apricot and peach. Plush and creamy on the finish, with pastry notes. Drink now.”

.

Pineapple, mango and peach aromas lead to juicy fruit flavors of citrus, sweet spices, pineapple, and toasty oak notes. The blend of the two Chardonnay lots adds both fruit forward qualities and a creamy texture. Highlighted by bright acidity, the wine finishes clean and refreshing. Drink now—no aging required. – Winery notes.
