Blanche is made from hand-picked Old Vine Chenin Blanc grapes sourced from the Jurassic Park Vineyard on Foxen Canyon Road in Santa Barbara County. This wine is delicious upon release, and is intended to be drunk now, but those with patience will be rewarded over the next 2-3 years as it picks up creamy weight and honeyed complexity.

Drink Riesling!  There's no need to be scared of it (can you believe some people are?).

You Got This.  It's dry riesling. It's made with fruit from the glorious Santa Barbara Riesling site - Kick On Ranch - in Los Alamos.  We make 8 different passes through our 2 acre block during harvest, hand picking early in the morning and whole-bunch pressing each time.  The juice is fermented long and cold in stainless steel to maximize freshness and pump up those beautiful clean smells.  The wine tastes like you squeezed a lime on a wet quartz crystal after using it to smash up white flowers.  It's super quaffable, and just the slightest bit spritzy from short aging in stainless before bottling.

The definition of Summer wine

I love the Bright White because it is sunshine in a bottle. Not to sweet, not too dry, perfectly balanced and juicy.

A sip of Santa Barbara

This wine always brings me joy! I love every sip. I had some shipped to my mom since she’s all the way across the country and white wine is our favorite thing to drink together. I wanted to send her one of the things I love most about Santa Barbara!

2017 Hilliard Bruce Chardonnay
Potek Winery

2017 Hilliard Bruce Chardonnay

Regular price $45.00 Free Local Delivery + Free Shipping on orders $79+
/

Hilliard Bruce Vineyard sits to the north of Hwy 246 in what’s just about the center of the Sta. Rita Hills appellation. The certified sustainably farmed ranch is planted to 16 acres of Pinot Noir and 5 acres of Chardonnay. The vineyard is divided into blocks by soil profile, rootstock, and clone. The vines are very densely planted at 2420 vines / acre.

We started working with Hilliard Bruce when Greg Brewer, a respected colleague and friend, took over the farming operation. We’ve been very pleased with the result of the meticulous farming and special site of the vineyard.

Our Chardonnay was produced by hand picking low brix fruit at night, and rushing it straight to our press in the morning. The fruit was pressed whole cluster directly to old French oak. The juice was allowed to begin fermentation on its own with ambient yeasts. The wine was aged in barrel for nine months with lees stirring performed once a month to build texture and increase mouthfeel.

The resulting wine is high energy with precise and vivid acidity resulting from the sandy soils and cool foggy ocean breezes. Aromas of lemon, vanilla, pear, and white pepper are followed with vibrant flavors of lemon zest, mint, and fig.

2017 Bien Nacido Chardonnay
Potek Winery

2017 Bien Nacido Chardonnay

Regular price $46.00 Free Local Delivery + Free Shipping on orders $79+
/

Bien Nacido is one of the greatest and most storied vineyards in America. The combination of the terroir of Bien Nacido Vineyards, the diligence of the people who manage it, and the close relationships they have developed with so many of the producers in our local wine industry are the components of what make it so special. 

The vineyard sits in the Santa Maria Valley which is heavily influenced by the nearby Pacific Ocean.  Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Syrah have found great expression here as the cool climate bestows fresh acidity, minerality, and delicious savoriness.  Our ‘W’ Block of Chardonnay was planted in the 1970s and is farmed organically today.

This bottling of Chardonnay was made by hand-picking at very low sugars and high acids. The fruit was whole-bunch pressed and the juice was sent straight to neutral French oak barrels for fermentation which was started spontaneously.

We aged the wine for eight months in barrel while stirring lees about once a month to help build texture and weight.  The wine has also partially completed malolactic fermentation.

The resulting Chardonnay is supple, and textured throughout with lemon cream, pear, spice, and mineral aromas and flavors.  The acidity is zippy and fresh, with texture and weight provided by the barrel aging and battonage.  The wine finishes fresh and long with lemon, mineral, and toasty flavors.
