This Chardonnay comes from one of our most trusted winemakers, Marc Piro. The vineyard sits less than 20 miles from the Pacific Ocean which gives it a refreshing and crisp structure, but round fruit flavors. It’s the first Chardonnay under the Piro label and we were given exclusive access to allocate it for our club members.

As you wade in the current, the work week fades to gray. When the line strikes and you begin that delicate dance, there’s no choice but to be in the moment. The refreshing citrus aromas and woodsy notes are like the creek passing through the forest. It’s a West Coast Pale Ale for a West Coast way of life.

“This 2020 Dry Riesling from Norris Vineyards is something I am truly excited to share with you. I met the Mckinley family about two years ago now, and have been looking forward to the release of this wine ever since. This wine has everything I am looking for; namely that green apple crunch that I typically can’t find in domestic versions of this grape. The care and precision that went into this wine is unparalleled.” – Lexi Jones, Director of Imports

Forget the stereotypes you may have heard – this is not your typical Chardonnay. It’s lean, mean, and completely jumps out of the glass. Medium bodied and refreshing, the wine’s 12 months of aging in oak barrels (24% new) adds the perfect amount of body weight to this well-balanced bottle.
Organic, unfined, and unfiltered. Only 600 cases produced. Magnums = double the size, which means double the fun, no?
This Cab is grown on a west-facing slope, above the fog line, on the northern ridge of the Atlas Peak AVA. The palate is dense and complex, marked by a long and polished finish. All we can say is, there’s a reason this graces the wine list at the French Laundry.

The summer sun dips low. You brush the salt from your skin after a long day of ocean swims and sandy beach towel naps. Now, your reward: you sink into your hammock with a Dos Topas in hand and let the cool, crisp taste wash over you. So tomorrow, when those warm sunshiny rays crest the mountain peaks, you’ll be ready for round dos.
This Pinot is perfectly balanced. With regards to Burgundian Pinot Noir, this wine is rather Volnay-like, and finishes with stony minerality and soft tannins.
Sustainable farming practices and only 92 cases produced.
You’ve gone from shrubland to woodland to highland. When you stop to sip on a Chief Peak, the piney hops are ﬁrst to arrive. The tropical tones of passion fruit, orange, and gooseberry aren’t far behind. Look out on the valley and trace the contours of the mountain. Breathe in the thinning air, wipe the sweat from your brow, and take another well-earned sip.
This is not over-oaked California Chardonnay, and it’s not searingly acidic French Chardonnay. It’s Oregon Chardonnay through and through; the perfectly subtle and level-headed middle sister we all wish we’d see more of.
