Description

A very rare find! When you have good chardonnay it can hide in the cellar for ages and come out of it tasting incredible. This has matured perfectly with aromas and flavours of hazelnut brittle, lychees, toffee apples, dried mango, candied lemon and pancetta frying in the neighbour’s kitchen.

MEET THE PRODUCERS

Stony Hill

Stony Hill sits on steep terraces on the eastern side of the Mayacamas Mountains in the Spring Mountain District AVA of the Napa Valley, between the towns of St. Helena and Calistoga. Our approximately 30 acres of vineyards lie between Ritchie Creek to the north and Mill Creek to the south. The vineyard was established in 1948, predating Bothe State Park, which surrounds the entire property.

Moderating climatic influences such as northeast exposure and an elevation between 800 and 1550 feet make this mild microclimate an ideal location for growing grapes. The bright, mineral backbone of our wines is a credit to the volcanic mountain soils and, far beneath the surface, limestone rock.

Stony Hill Vineyard has obtained its organic certification “CCOF” since 2019. We are looking forward to advancing to the Demeter certification in the coming years and move even further to Regenerative Farming. There are plans to bring in various animals and livestock dogs to the property in Summer 2021. Moving forward, we aim to use our compost and animals to work the soil and create biodiversity.
