Product Description

VINEYARD

In the late 1920s, the Sangiacomo family purchased their first parcel in Sonoma—originally planted to fruit trees then to grapes for winemaking.  In 1969, the Sangiacomo’s Green Acres vineyard was planted in part to the original Old Wente clone of Chardonnay. Saintsbury partnered with the Sangiacomo family in 1981 and ever since has made Chardonnay from the Green Acres vineyard. Now, we are thrilled to release the single-vineyard designate Green Acres Chardonnay.

Appellation: Carneros, Sonoma

Terroir:  sandy loam soil;  bordering the Sonoma Creek on the eastside and  Fowler Creek running through the vineyard. 

WINEMAKING

Hand harvested at  night, fruit is on the crush pad by sunrise. The grapes are whole cluster pressed, and the wine is  barrel fermented with light lees.
