2013 Ceja Vineyards Chardonnay Carneros

(0) No Reviews yet


Longtime vineyard masters of the Carneros region, the Ceja family have knocked it out of the park with their latest Chardonnay. High-toned citrus, green apple, ripe pear and honeysuckle make for a lively and fresh presence on the palate, with a rich and creamy texture leaving nothing to be desired. Crisp, tangy and energetic, this is exactly what California Chardonnay wants to be.

Details

If there's a winery story more emblematic of The American Dream than Ceja Vineyards, we would love to hear about it. The story of Ceja begins in the 1950s, when patriarch and Mexican immigrant Pablo Ceja began working in the vineyards of the Napa Valley. By 1967, his wife and 6 children had joined him in St. Helena, and the family threw themselves into working for area wineries, and eventually settled in Carneros.

In 1983, Pablo, Juanita, son Armando, and son Pedro and his wife Amelia pooled all of their life savings and bought 15 acres in Carneros. By 1986, 13 acres of Pinot Noir were planted. In 1999, they launched Ceja Vineyards as a winery. Today the Cejas own and control 113 acres, comprised of 2 vineyards in Sonoma, 1 vineyard in Petaluma, and 1 vineyard in Napa. Known primarily for their outstanding Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays, it is immensely gratifying to be a part of the success of this all-hands-on-deck, dizzying family affair of a winery.
