Custard Wines

These grapes make a wine that reminds me of one of my favorite childhood indulgences‐Sunday morning glazed doughnuts with creamy custard filling…’comfort food’ before I even knew what that was. The first time I stuck my nose into a glass of this Chardonnay, it brought me back to that moment—and the idea for comfort wine was born.

Within each of these AVAs are sub-AVAs, all with have their own distinct mesoclimate. The grape varieties used in Sonoma County barely deviates from that used throughout California. Chardonnay takes the lead as the most planted white variety and Cabernet Sauvignon donimants the red. Sonoma County is California's largest producers of wine grapes.
