Fact: Not many people realize it, but Fisher’s Chardonnay is one of the very finest produced in Sonoma County. It’s simply spectacular. It’s a wine Antonio Galloni called “fabulous. Rich and unctuous in the glass, the 2015 exudes richness in every dimension in an ample, creamy style that captures the purest essence of this site beautifully. I loved it.” We loved the wine’s succulent, bright profile, with notes of verbena, lime butter, and marshmallow. This is the last wine from the original 1973 Chardonnay plantings!

The Fisher family has the sort of vineyards that will cause a winemaker’s pulse to quicken – a vitally important advantage in a game where the conversation starts (and ends) with raw materials. From their gorgeous estate property on the Sonoma side of the Mayacamas range, to their Lamb vineyard in Calistoga, they have some magical land at their disposal. Winemaker Whitney Fisher and her team are farming these plots to exacting standards, and the results are some of the best wines in the Valley! You owe it to yourself to mix up a case of these fabulous wines.

The 2015 Chardonnay Whitney's Vineyard is fabulous. Rich and unctuous in the glass, the 2015 exudes richness in every dimension in an ample, creamy style that captures the purest essence of this site beautifully. The decision to bottle the Whitney's Chardonnay with no filtration yielded a stark, transparent wine that speaks to the site. I loved it
