2013 The Gardener Chardonnay Sonoma Russian River Valley

(0) No Reviews yet

The Gardener wines are part of Horse & Plow, started in 2008 by husband-and-wife winemaking team Chris Condos and Suzanne Hagins. They craft this wine from the Don Miguel Vineyard in the Russian River Valley. It’s a rarity, with only 225 cases produced. This ravishing white has bright acidity and ripe notes of pear and Gravenstein apple. Slightly nutty and floral, this wine has us thinking of grilling up some scallop kebabs and brushing them with lemon and browned butter.



Husband and wife team Chris Condos and Suzanne Hagins, started "Horse & Plow" in 2008 with a plethora of experience at some of the top names in California's wine industry. Chris' career blossomed in the cellar at Pine Ridge, while Suzanne started in Pommard at Comte Armand. While they each maintain their "day jobs" at other wineries, Horse & Plow is their very own. Their lineup is based on organically farmed vineyards and small lot fermentations which turn out balanced, food friendly and site specific wines. Their playground is the whole of California's North Coast AVA, where they live and work. What began as a 600 case venture has greatly expanded as they keep finding special vineyards from which to source fruit. These two are impeccably well connected within the wine industry so it's no wonder they just keep finding the goods and turning out great wines.
